Pitt is deadpan throughout the entire film (his new nickname is "Chloroform"). Half the movie was the intro between the two characters, the other half was a shallow attempt at giving more false hope that 'something' was going to happen that would help snap out of a big yawn. Thriller? Twist's and turn's? Not a one.

Good movie. Pitt's acting a bit wooden, as usual. Great settings, scenes and wardrobe's.

This was a great movie! We weren’t sure what to expect after reading the reviews, but we were quite impressed! It’s a great story with plenty of twists and turns, great acting, and great writing. We would highly recommend it!

Good suspense, acting and costumes. My mom was born in Medicine Hat, so I was tickled it was mentioned a few times in the movie. Alert: there are some spoilers among the other comments here which will ruin the suspense if you read them before watching the film.

I like the actors and the director (Zemekis) so I thought I'd give this a try. It looks good and sort of sweeps you along, and has a few nice romantic moments and a tear-jerker ending. But over and over again as I was watching it, in the back of my mind I found myself asking ... "Is that really plausible?" ... or even... "Does that make sense?" After the movie ended, the more I thought about it, the more plot holes, implausibilities, and just plain stupidities I found with the plot. None of it really makes sense. So in that sense the script is really, really bad. So if that kind of thing bothers you, I recommend that you forget this film.

I loved the mystery of the plot as it builds up the the climax at the end of the story. The chemistry between the two seems to be Red HOT until Brad's character has to decide what he has to do to prove that his wife is not a spy for the other side.

His Marianne Beausejour could be an impostor and a spy for the other side. He goes to the front lines to discover that the real Marianne plays the piano, but his wife does not.

Great climax though.

Brad Pitt has finally taken a chance in opening up romantically, and then has to face the question: "Is my wife really a spy for the other side?" The Canary Islands do a bang-up job as the stand-in for French Morocco during WWII, with the Germans a bit broadly overdrawn as the bad guys. The true emotional pitch comes afterward, in England.

Violence: War, assassinations, blackmail.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It's a movie set in WWII partly during a bombing raid on London. Shootings. Grenade explosions. War-damaged people.

Sexual Content: A couple of sex scenes, brief nudity, and suggested sexual acts.

Violence: Plenty of killings by guns, mostly. Not gory, for the most part.
