Dir: Susanna White

A couple are lured into a Russian oligarch’s plans to defect, and are soon positioned between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service
This political thriller is based on John le Carré’s 2010 novel of the same name and features a journey from London to Paris by Eurostar. This starts with a good shot of London St Pancras station with Class 373 Eurostar EMU’s in the platforms, followed by some equally good shots of Eurostar sets passing through the countryside. There is then a scene with McGregor and Harris onboard one of the trains before a final overall view of the curved platforms of Gare du Nord station in Paris as viewed from the elevated Boulevard de la Chapelle to the north of the station. More Eurostar sets are present in the platforms.
