This review is from: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy [DVD]  (DVD)
Saw the BBC series - which was excellent, well acted and kept true to the story.
Then watched the film which was confusing despite the excellent cast. Puzzled why Peter Guillam character was made gay. Read the book and no mention in neitherthe BBC series nor book of such a detail.
Got the family, who were familiar with neither the BBC series nor the book, to watch the film. They also found the story confusing. They much preferred the BBC series which we watched after the film.
Disappointing film of an excellent tale
