Tinker tailor soldier spy age appropriate

 

Somebody should give Jina Jay, the casting director of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, an award. The much-heralded remake of John le Carré’s 1974 spy novel has, with apologies to fans of The Expendables, the best acting ensemble of any film in recent times. Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Simon McBurney, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Toby Jones, Ciaran Hinds are just a few of the first-rate performers who make this adaptation so completely absorbing and a more than worthy companion piece to the 1979 BBC serialisation.

Hats off, too, to the person who hired Tomas Alfredson as director. Like Let the Right One In (2008), Tinker Tailor is a period piece that’s about mood as much as it is about drama. It’s strong on boredom, isolation, paranoia. Made by a Swede who is an outsider to the British class system, it’s unusually sensitive to the ways in which the Establishment represented by the intelligence services is itself filled with outsiders.

As a result, this is an adaptation that’s less posh, less clubby than the television version. Like The Lives of Others and like much contemporary Romanian cinema, it looks back at the Cold War era – its cruelties and banalities – with a clear, cold eye.
