HARTING FILM NIGHTS AT THE VILLAGE HALL RETURNS ON THURSDAY 14th APRIL
FILM STARTS AT 7.30pm. DOORS OPEN AT 7.00pm
The last film of this season will be Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the adaptation of John le Carré's classic cold war espionage novel. A retired spy, George is summoned by the Government to investigate a furtive case. With a secret Soviet agent assumed to be working within their system, will George be able to unveil his identity?
Many of you will have read the book and may also remember the spellbinding BBC series starring Alec Guinness. The film version, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, brilliantly conjures up the heavy weather of Le Carré's spy game: it involves nothing like derring-do, but a ritual of humiliation and a ballet of shame in which the security services play their part in managing decline and denial, and the Brit spooks try to rebuild their reputation with the Americans – the only people with secrets worth keeping – in their calamitous post-Philby world.
“This Tinker Tailor is a weightless, slo-mo nightmare taking place in what looks like an aquarium filled with poison gas instead of water: I found it more gripping and involving than any crash-bang action picture, and it is anchored by Gary Oldman's tragic mandarin, a variation on Alec Guinness .”
“What a treat this film is, and what an unexpected thrill.”
