True Love conquers Totalitarianism in these 2 spy thrillers


Recommended Posts

middle-aged love, and the terrors of night time BERLIN---two touching spy tales from the Cold War, and WW2:

SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD - Richard Burton and Claire Bloom have a few moments of happiness before the bullets fly.

ALONE IN BERLIN - Brendan Gleeson and Emma Thompson wage their own sort of "war" against Nazi Germany, leaving notes telling the "truth" in random locations in Berlin.

 

(Richard Burton, Claire Bloom)

'The Spy Who Came in from the Cold' always gets my vote as one of the most faithful and best book-to-movie adaptations in cinema. It's outstanding; devastating...fully on par with the history-making novel, (albeit in its own medium).

The other one you mentioned... no, can't say I ever heard of it or even know the actors names. Its Greek to me.

ALONE IN BERLIN is based on real people---a husband and wife who set out to "inform" people in Berlin about the Nazis with postcards left where they might be found and read. A lot were!

They got the death sentence for this, but their story is wonderful. Not content with keeping silent, they did SOMETHING at least.
