Incredibly well crafted, brilliantly suspensful thriller based on the book by John Le Carre. Containing many many fine performances; in particular the underated Gary Oldman, who no doubt will be Oscar nominated. Othe potentialr nominees I suspect could include; Colin Firth, John Hurt and possibly even Benedict Cumberbatch. Expertly directed and wonderfully put together and one of the rare selection of films which appreciates its audience. Highly recomended and a modern masterpiece of the 10's. No doubt will sweep the board in the 2012 BAFTAS and OSCARS. No doubt Alfredson has the Oscar in the bag! See it now.
