TRAILER: Philip Seymour Hoffman i spiondrama


Her på huset er vi nesegruse fans av John le Carré, spionmesteren som har gitt oss alt fra Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy til The Constant Gardener. I juli kommer filmatiseringen av 2008-boken A Most Wanted Man, gjort av Anton Corbijn, og denne traileren gir lovnader om en klassisk spionfilm. Philip Seymour Hoffman ser ut til å være gnistrende som den hardtdrikkende tyske etterretningsagenten Gunter Bachmann, Robin Wright er knallhard som i House of Cards, fremadstormende Daniel Brühl dukker opp, og Willem Dafoe leverer steinansikt. Plottet? “The German port city of Hamburg was where Mohammed Atta and his collaborators planned the Sept. 11 attacks, a fact that has kept intelligence operatives there on high alert more than a decade later. It’s against this tense backdrop of justified paranoia and lingering shame that rumpled, hard-drinking Gunter Bachmann (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) runs a secret anti-terrorism team seeking to develop sources within the Islamic community that will lead them to higher-profile suspects. It’s a risky task, requiring patience and sensitivity as well as a willingness to hold back and negotiate, and in this Bachmann finds himself continually at odds with paper-pushing Hamburg intelligence head Dieter Mohr (Rainer Bock), who would rather arrest first and ask questions later.”
