The Impossible Spy Reviews:

One who is not interested in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict, sympathetic to the Israeli cause, and inspired by Eli Cohen's sacrifice for that cause, will probably search this film boring. One comes away from watching this movie, not thinking about what a nice film he just watched, but about the life of Eli Cohen. And perhaps that's what the filmmakers intended.I can't think of anything particularly nice to tell about the movie. It is somewhat slow-paced, and no performances particularly stand out. But I search myself going back and watching it again and again, because the storyline it says is so interesting to me. While the acting and production do not draw attention to themselves with their impressiveness, neither do they distract from the storyline due to terrible quality; everything about the film is unspectacular but competent.The only complaint I can create is about the portrayal of Cohen's wife. She comes across so annoyingly that in the end, after her husband's death, when she encounters the Mossad official who lied to her repeatedly, took her husband away and sent him on the point that resulted in his death, one finds oneself sympathizing with the spy-master because of the awkwardness of the situation, rather than with the aggrieved widow because of her loss.


"The Impossible Spy" is a so-so spy flick and docudrama which says of renowned Israeli spy Eli Cohen and his penetration of the Syrian government in the years prior to the Six Days War. The movie has the look of a weak budget indie and, though it's well meaning and earnest, it is not a very elegant flick. Furthermore, much of the storyline seems too obvious to be true spy items which probably just means it's true. Suggested for those into spy flicks or the history of the Syrian/Israel conflict of the 1960's.


It's strange that another foreign movies, much worst, are given the greatest marksI found this film very moving, and well documented. Indeed, it is a documentary.Even on films, bias vs Israel is obvious. I saw marks as high as 8.1 and 5 are given to horrible french movies, which are the worst in the movie industry. French, besides naked and "object" women, have no imagination, and still they are given the greatest marks. Incredible.The storyline of this Israeli spy is very informative of at which length would Israelis go to protect their citizens vs vicious attacks from the neighboring Arabs. This film renders with utmost reality the talent exercised by this Israeli spy to hiding his activities to his wife and entire family.And his entire life as a spy is wonderful because he didn't chose to be a spy and it was not his trade at all. That shows the love Israelis have for their small country due to the fact they endanger their own lives and the lives of their families, without a thought, to support their country. I trust this film is very well directed and played, especially when we consider the size and the date of Israel's creation: 1948. There was nothing but sand and desert. My marks for this film is 8.5
