| Shadowy spy story proves devil is in the detail and there's not enough devil
This is a spy thriller with a minimalist style and a paranoid feel. It has theme about one who places trust in those who don't trust others.The strength in the script is that it places the viewer right in the predicaments about telling the truth, and being trapped with seemingly no way out. For this it should be given credit for the genuine feeling of intrigue. Atmosphere builds very well but it is impossibly to sustain as a crime enters the storyline where the impact is low in atmosphere. From then on there are difficulties with plot holes about the scribe's options. The uneventful daily routine, where our middle-aged, recently long term-unemployed protagonist sits in an empty modern apartment and types up mundane phone conversations on an old fashioned typewriter is a bit far fetched, as is his easy trust of his anonymous employer who presumably he would have vetted after such a strange job interview. But, all in all, it is a slightly above average thriller.
