Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe and Daniel Bruhl (damn) the film tells the tale of a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant who turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill-gotten fortune. Both German and U.S. security agencies take a close interest in him as the race is on to find out who he really is: oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?
And this leaked sizzle reel footage, presumably presented recently at the Cannes Film Festival in the market, looks simply great. Once again, Corbijn has crafted a film with a tremendous sense of mood, in what looks like a grownup and mature movie, that will offer some an intelligent, tense little story. Which is basically a rarity these days. The entire cast looks on-point, and even the accents feel spot on. So yeah, our anticipation is growing further.
