Philip Seymour Hoffman is a German spy tasked by morally dubious superiors to track down a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. Based on the counter-terrorist novel by John le Carré (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) about the sins committed in the name of national security. From director Anton Corbijn (Control).
"Pressured by his German and American colleagues to capture and interrogate his suspect as a Muslim terrorist, Bachmann instead asks for more time to carefully track Issa's (Grigoriy Dobrygin) movements and his relationship with his German immigration lawyer, Annabel Richter (Rachel McAdams). Using his secret contacts and keen skill, Bachmann uncovers a connection between a world-renowned Muslim philanthropist and a terrorist group and devises a plan to use Issa and Annabel in a brilliant ploy to expose the scheme."
