Fiction loosely based on the lives of Burgess and Maclean, the two upper-crust Englishmen who became spies for the Soviet Union. It begins as Everett is ensconced in Moscow, allowing himself to be interviewed for the first time in years, by a woman from the US (Brantley). The film flashes back to the 1930s, when Brantley falls hard for Elwes but keeps it secret so that he will be eligible to join a group of upperclassmen known as "The Gods." When his romantic penchant--or rather his inability to be discreet about it--is discovered by members of the group, they will no longer consider him a candidate for membership, and he begins his lifelong attempt to take revenge on "authority." The best part of this otherwise inconsequential movie is the cinematography of Biziou, which won a prize in 1984 at the Cannes Film Festival.
