John le Carré: The Tailor of Panama

Meglepett, hogy mennyire olvastatta magát ez a regény, mostanában nem voltam túl szerencsés a könyvekkel, ehhez képest hamar kivégeztem. A filmet (még) nem láttam, úgyhogy nem voltak előzetes elvárásaim a történettel kapcsolatban – ahogy a regényt ihlető Our Man in Havana-t se olvastam. Annyit mindenestre levontam következtetésként, hogy ha ez nem ábrándítja ki az embert a kémkedés természetéből, akkor nem tudom mi fogja.

John le Carré: The Tailor of Panama

A konyvet elolvasva megallapiottam, hogy remekul sikerult a film adaptacio. Geoffrey Rush, aki a Ragyogj ota az egyik kedvenc szineszem remekul alakitottan Harry-t, bar Pierce Brosnan nemileg elter attol, amilyennek Le Carre Andy-t megformazta. Osszessegeben izgalmas konyv, meg ugy is, hogy a film miatt tudtam, mire szamithatok.

[…] since nothing is more predictable than the media's parroting of its own fictions and the terror of each competitor that it will be scooped by the others, whether or not the story is true because quite frankly, dears, in the news game these days, we don't have the staff, time, interest, energy, literacy or minimal sense of responsibility to check our facts by any means except calling up whatever has been written by other hacks on the same subject and repeating it as gospel.

But good intentions in wartime do not easily communicate themselves to the subjects of them, self-restraint passes unnoticed, and the presence of a few fugitive enemy snipers in a poor suburb does not explain its wholesale incineration. It's not much help saying, 'We used the minimum force' to terrified people running barefoot for their lives over blood and smashed glass, dragging suitcases and children with them on their way to nowhere.

They force him to watch. Because what is the point of making an example of a rebellious woman if there's nobody around to take the point?

Everything in the world is true if you invent it hard enough and love the person it's for!
