because I was born right after the war.... and lived in comunist country for 22 years... before coming to canada I can assure you this is sad story but true story... I also had the opportunity to visit Dresden and Berling in 2011 and saw the Charlie Check Point and see names of all the people who were short while trying to escape to the west.... since the east and west germany united in 1989 lots of people remember the pain and being scared... Tom Hanks played the role wonderfully .... I purchased this movie for my children so they can understand how it was in europe in 20th century as their great grandfathers and grandmothers and great great died during the war and sucrifice they did so we can have a better life.... God Bless us all... sincerely Marcelle
Thank you again for such a good Blu ray
As a history buff I found the details (even if they may have been inaccurate) interesting as they weaved a tale demonstrating the ability of an insurance lawyer to negotiate. Tom hanks nailed it.
Guide: No sex or nudity. 2 F-bombs near the end.
Steven Spielberg directs this movie, and he teams up again with his favorite actor Hanks to deliver a fun and entertaining spy drama. Hanks excels in his role and is wonderfully supported by Mark Rylance, who plays the Soviet spy. While this movie won't win any awards, it is a wonderfully directed, well acted spy drama with plenty of suspense and thrills.
Tom Hanks plays an insurance lawyer (James Donovan) sent to Germany to negotiate the release of a U-2 spy plane pilot in exchange for a captured Russian spy (Rudolf Abel) played by Oscar Nominee Mark Rylance.
Hanks and Rylance are brilliant in their roles and Spielberg delivers just the right amount of suspense and tension throughout the movie to keep the audience engaged and wondering what happens next.
At it’s heart Bridge of Spies is about relationships, trust and respect at a time when America was on edge and nobody trusted the Soviets or East German’s.
My Two favorite quotes from the movie:
James Donovan: “Aren’t you worried
Rudolf Abel: “Would it Help?”
and Rudolf Abel: “The boss isn’t always right, but he’s still the boss”
Spielberg and Hank’s deliver another Brilliant, Entertaining and Informative movie which reinforces your belief in humanity and leaves you feeling good in the end.
99% English so no reading subtitles for half the movie.
