Operation Sunrise "Seventeen Moments in Spring" Soviet classic film.
English and Spanish subtitles.

Quote:The series is based on a true story of a Russian spy Colonel Isaev (Stirlitz) in Fascist Germany during 17 days in very end of WWII. Stirlitz has worked his way to the very top of the Fascist hierarchy without being caught. However, his "colleagues", top Hitler's officers Borman, Mueller, Schellenberg are beginning to suspect him. Stirlitz is constantly walking on the edge between his two identities, sending information to Russia, while skillfully maintaining the appearance of loyalty to fascist regime.

Many movies that used to impress us awhile ago (1973), fail to impress us any more. Not this one.

"This movie is a masterpiece of the Soviet Cinema. Now when it is available on DVD in North America, I have watched it again and I cannot think of any other old Russian/Soviet movie that strikes me so much". On the surface, the story is about an agent of the Soviet intelligence service who tries to obtain the proof of the attempts of high-rank Nazi to strike a separate deal with the Western Allies in the last months of the World War Two in Europe. However, the movie is much deeper than a spy thriller. No invisible ink, hi-tech guns and beautiful women. Or, rather, just one: the hero's wife. He had not seen her for many years, and now he is allowed to meet her. He is in a cafe in Berlin. She enters, takes a seat in a far corner, orders a cup of coffee. She talks to her companion for a minute and then, suddenly, she turns over to face her husband. They look into each other's eyes for a second or two, then she turns her gaze away from him, put her coffee aside and walk away. The meeting is over. Oh, the power of these so mercilessly brief moments... No words, just great acting and beautiful music. This scene is one of the greatest masterpieces of all times".
