Story


When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?

Poignant, compassionate and thrilling, "A Most Wanted Man" prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene. It is a cerebral tale of intrigue that is both contemporary and deeply human, touching on love, rivalry, politics and the world we live in.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this atmospheric, cool-looking but gimpy thriller based on a John le Carre novel makes "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" look like "22 Jump Street." A disappointingly inert Philip Seymour Hoffman..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..to some, Corbijn's movie will feel moody and complex..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“.."A Most Wanted Man" is not a guns-and-motorcycles spy story but a shadowy walk down a dark alley..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
