Maybe for a western movie goer who doesn't know the realities of the former Soviet Union that soap opera is watchable. But for people who came from behind the iron curtain this movie looks like a good parody. In every detail: clothes, make ups, looks of the soviet streets and people,the shown events everything is unbelievably wrong.It always makes you wonder on why the film makers spent millions on producing such a movie, but couldn't they hire a consultant? The mistakes they made are so plentiful that, where I should've cried for a beautiful Katya, I couldn't hold my giggles. Unfortunately, that movie was dubbed in Russian language and shown there in many movie theaters. I can only imagine with what epithets the Russian viewers commented the film. Many times I read in the Russian newspapers that Americans are stupid. And what can they think after watching that rubbish?
In 1950s Moscow, communist Katya secretly spies for the Americans in the Cold War arms race. When she lands her biggest assignment, stealing secrets from rising government star Alexander, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with him. Reconciling her passion for him with her beliefs about communism means making the greatest sacrifice - of her life - a sacrifice that Alexander only uncovers thirty years later.
