Synopsis:
Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) and Margot Tyrrell (Helena Bonham Carter) are now on the run together across Europe, going from town to town in Germany. But Worricker knows his only chance of resolving his problems is to return home and confront his nemesis - the prime minister, Alec Beasley (Ralph Fiennes). To do this, he's going to have to bring to light some unsavoury facts about the prime minister's financial and business arrangements. But Worricker is haunted by the suspicion that he's not the only person out to undermine the prime minister.

really good - Salting the Battlefield review by CC

Spoiler Alert
03/06/2015

Great movie full of intrigue and twists to the story. Bill Nighy was excellent as always.

This is the third in a trilogy and I hadn't seen the second one. Would have been slightly easier to follow the plot if I had but didn't detract from the enjoyment of the film. I recommend seeing all the episodes in order.

1. Page Eight.

2. Turks and Caicos.

3. Salting the Battlefield.

Great acting and plot - Salting the Battlefield review by JD

Spoiler Alert

David Hare seems to have a very good grip on spy intrigue, how British intelligence works and how it has changed recently. Carter, Fiends, Nighy are all actors of immense skill and justified distinction. It doesn't hang together well enough for me however. There is a lot of rushing around escaping pursuers, changing addresses and secret meetings but I didn't really get absorbed into it. Probably better if you see it as the third part of the trilogy but then it would be in danger of being far too long.

Part 3 Finale - Salting the Battlefield review by NC

Rounds off 3 good films. Reminds me of Tinker Tailor, the originals. Quite intelligent dialogue, for once. Bill is the same in every film he does, but his persona fits this role. Hardly a lady killer really, but they have to do it, they feel obliged..............
