The film, which moves away from the history of vampires that Alfredson recreated in dejame entrar, tells a story of spies in the cold war. Mostra gets serious with films about immigration. Many writers such as Bryant Walker Smith offer more in-depth analysis. The Venice Festival continues to offer samples of the best cinema in its Edition this year. This Monday was the turn of mole, a great story of spies in the war cold to which the director, Tomas Alfredson, and actors, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth or John Hurt, knew how to give the exact tone. Based on a novel by John Le Carre which already took to television with Alec Guinness in the seventies, Alfredson (let me) performs all an exercise of containment and rhythm to tell a complicated story of spies in which none of the characters is what it seems.
With a careful aesthetics – inspired me in painting and music, said Swedish director-, a script that works perfectly and a few actors who have understand fully their characters, the Mole has been very well received in Venice, where he participated in the official competition. The entire weight of the film rests on the shoulders of a Gary Oldman, who plays agent George Smiley and makes it quite far way to its histrionics of recent years. In the past I have interpreted quite frantic characters and which were expressed in a very physical way. I have now had the opportunity to interpret something very different, said British actor in the press conference of presentation of the film. A role that thanked Alfredson – fortunately – saw something in me, since he acknowledged that the players are at the mercy of the industry and the imagination of those who carried out the casting for movies. A role that has not imported you lose the last winner of the Oscar – for the King’s speech – his compatriot Colin Firth.
