L’AFFAIRE FAREWELL Movie Photos with Guillaume Canet
Check out the French trailer and pictures from L’AFFAIRE FAREWELL which stars Guillaume Canet, Emir Kusturica, and is directed by Christian Carion.
L’Affaire Farewell Synopsis: The Cold War can seem a lifetime ago, but L’Affaire Farewell brings a critical episode from that time humming back to life. Director Christian Carion follows his Academy Award-nominated hit Joyeux Noël with another tale that chronicles sweeping conflicts between nations in humanizing detail.
It’s Moscow, 1981. KGB spy Sergei Grigoriev (played in a brooding, layered performance by filmmaker Emir Kusturica) has decided to leak documents to the West that would compromise his own country. He has his motives. Pierre Froment (Guillaume Canet from Ne le dis à personne) is a French engineer working in Moscow. He has no connection to espionage, until his boss draws him into a delicate game. Grigoriev will pass the documents to Froment, who will relay them to French intelligence. Divulging proof of how deeply the KGB has infiltrated the West, the Russian hopes to precipitate an American reaction, and with it the collapse of the Soviet Union.
L’Affaire Farewell was released to theaters in France on September 23, 2009, but there is no release date for the US yet. Check out the poster and more photos below. You can also watch the trailer (in French) here.
