Our Kind of Traitor

Who can you trust with the truth?


Our Kind of Traitor
While on holiday in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, who unbeknownst to them, is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia. When he asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, the couple get caught up in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics. They embark on a perilous journey through Paris and Berne, then to a safe house in the French Alps, and finally to the murky corners of the City of London and an alliance with the British Government via a ruthless and determined MI6 agent.

Tomatometer quote iconOur Kind of Traitor relies on solid writing and acting rather than action to deliver its spy-movie thrills -- and thankfully has the pedigree to pull it off on both fronts.
