(probably) down-to-earth spy thriller

Excellent slow boil espionage thriller. Flawless performances, brilliant screenplay and a slap in the face to expected norms.

My Opinion as an Iranian

I think this movie shows relatively realistic image of Iran , Iranian people and clash between Iran and Israel. As an Iranian I enjoyed the movie. unlike some of similar movies about Iran , all Iranian characters are good hearted people with no Iranian interrogators or such. also I like that -despite having Israeli production- the involvement of Mossad on Iranian scientist assassination and sabotaging Iran's nuclear program is depicted without hesitation. Acting was good and Iran's streets and atmosphere shown believable and almost perfect ... there is no Opel Astra police cars or old Volvo Station wagons in Iran though. I gave is 8 of 10.

My father is dead. Again.

Rachel works officially as an English teacher in Tehran, but she is actually a local operative agent in the pay of the Mossad. In this respect, she summarily executes missions without really understanding neither the why nor the who: kill a Russian John Doe within an elevator, copy files from a computer server, import explosive charges in Iran, observe the comings and goings of an Iranian minister from the terrace of a bistro ... until her consciousness reaches saturation and forces her to stop.

With The Operative (2019), Yuval Adler delivers a simple and well-interpreted spy film, especially with the excellent Diane Kruger. In a way, her character of Rachel reminds me of Meursault in L'Étranger (Albert Camus, 1942). But the film is excessively messy with manifold flashbacks as numerous as irritating. Overall, I had a hard time being empathetic with this Rachel. Despite undeniable qualities, this film frustrated me. As a synthesis: 4/5 of 10.

PS: Knowing that the purpose of a coded telephone conversation is to not attract attention of a hypothetical agent of the local counterintelligence services (and in case of failure, to offer a maximal misunderstanding of the conversation ), thus with a spy movie beginning with a coded phrase such as « my father is dead, again », it is better not to expect a masterpiece.
