The Russia House (1990)



Reviews and Comments

Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer do a fine job in The Russia House -- they work well both apart and together. If only they had been in a movie where something actually happens, the pairing would have paid off. Although I fully expect The Russia House to be a more realistic chronicle of the life of a spy than the spy fantasies of James Bond, for example, there's a reason why such spy fantasies exist. Real spy work probably isn't very eventful except for the odd moments. Case in point.
