    I saw it at the cinema last week. It's a pretty slow film. No real action but it gets more interesting and fun when the Spanish have the body to deal with. It's hard to compare with the original film, 'The man who never was', but it benefits from having much more real information about the plot. When they made the first film in the 1950's it was still secret.

    Just watched it, very witty, swirling camera angles, the movie tries to dig deeper into characters' personal lives....

    I want to add something. This movie deals A LOT with characters' personal lives, and that's OK. But you really need to see the much older "The man who never was" to feel the tension of this operation.
