Fay Grim

(USA/Germany, 2006, 116 minutes)

Seven years after her husband has disappeared, Fay Grim finds out he may have been a spy and a number of intelligence agencies are after the notebooks where he wrote his magnum opus. Deadpan, wryly satirical deconstruction of espionage thrillers that features all the hallmarks one has come to expect from its arty director; a sequel of sorts to 1997’s Henry Fool, though you needn’t have seen the original to enjoy this.
