Bridge of Spies


Seen in Geneva. It's a good movie- even better than Tom Hanks is perhaps Mark Rylance as the Soviet spy. A spy-trade happens, and Tom Hanks becomes an unlikely hero. It is a good movie- but not amongst the best definitely. What I somehow remember the most is Abel and Donovan's 'would it help if I were worried' scenes. Abel being roused out of bed in his American prison and then flown to Germany. Strangely: Abel is never tortured or even interrogated in the US while his counterpart swap the American student and the U2 pilot are well, quite harassed by their captors- the East Germans and the Russians. Now, isn't that funny? ;)
