Quelques Jours en Septembre

A Few Days in September

(France/Italy, 2006, 115 minutes)

A retired spy is asked by a former colleague to pick up his two children so he can meet them, but she finds other people are searching for him as well. Highly literate, elegantly restrained combination of existentialist spy thriller à la John Le Carré and family melodrama, marred by a needless conspiracy thriller aspect, some perfunctory plotting and a ridiculously off-kilter villain.
