"a tale of negligence and hubris that makes one speechless... at other times one can't help but laugh out loud"
"Rudolph Herzog's documentary offers deep insights into the world of East-West espionage with all its turmoils."
FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG
"Filmaker Rudolph Herzog succeeds in putting across the full drama of this daring adventure [...] In the stillness of one's sitting-room, one is nothing short of amazed - and how often is one truly astonished in front of the television?"
a gutsy drama and a vivid parable...it feels contemporary and as sharp as a tack. This is a really good film.
It‘s slick, riveting stuff, grippingly pieced together.[...]
a wonderfully enjoyable programme.

Truggestalten creates an impressive atmosphere... a clever montage, very convincingly assembled. A most successful fiction debut.
