The plot hardly matters here; it's only a vehicle for exploring the dirty side of intelligence work and is complicated as a Swiss watch.
Maybe the NSA revelations have you thinking twice about spywork? The fact that we caught spying on our own allies, the Germans, adds a special relevance to this tale.
But the real appeal here is a LeCarre's dark, dark, dark worldview and b Hoffman's superb acting. He just tosses this role off, and is utterly convincing.
Just as gritty and dirty and with Richard Burton as Alec Leamus. Like Gunther Bachmann,Leamus was a worn-out, beat-up, used-up operative, and audiences of the time, entranced by the frivolities of James Bond, were rather shocked by the dose of reality he represented.
He is wonderful in the film and is surrounded by a solid cast, though not nearly as good as Hoffman. Similar to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the pace is moderate with almost no summer blockbuster action.
It's a wonderful pallet cleanser for anyone who enjoys a thriller and has already seen a bunch of the latest CGI showcases. Tinker Tailor is more difficult to understand than this movie as A Most Wanted Man weaves a fairly straight forward plot.
Some reviews I read before seeing the film had me thinking twice about reading the wikipedia plot synopsis before I went into the theater, but I ventured in without doing so and didn't have any trouble keeping up.
I'll also be happy to see it again on Blu-Ray in my home theater and will surely catch much more of the subtle nuances. The scenes are beautifully shot, but don't require an IMAX sized screen to enjoy.
Warning: Spoilers. The titular character is no character at all and his story is pretty much a dead end. He is a Chechen who arrives in Hamburg illegally and covertly.
He has been to hell and back and as you would expect he bears both the emotional and physical scars of his past, which he relates small snippets of.
However, none of this has much impact on the story. His father is of dubious character and so he then suddenly decides he wants no part in the money after all.
We then turn our attention to the money being offered to a known terrorist financier unwittingly by the Chechen so that the German Secret Service can use this to lead them to the highest echelons of the organisation and their other financiers and money launderers.
This is the problem. At this stage I should mention I had a pee break half an hour in, so may have missed something crucial, but this is what troubled me: Gunther is screwed over by the rival department and by an American Spook, played by Robin Wright.
We know why the rival would, but why would she do this? Also, given the relevance of the subject material in today's news, there is a surprising lack of exploration of the political context.
Compare this to Tinker Tailor, where dubious actions and motives were very clearly established and yet skilfully revealed and where there was a memorable bad guy.
A Most Wanted Man falls way short in this comparison. Although a period piece, Tinker Tailor feels more relevant to current affairs than this film.
The Acting is excellent as is the Direction, even the Writing isn't at all bad, but the story itself may leave you underwhelmed.
How does a society both protect its people from bad guys who want to destroy it - while safeguarding personal liberty, free speech, personal information, etc?
It is a current dilemma one which is very capably explored in A Most Wanted Man. The story line is easily understandable - a Chechnyan refugee is seeking asylum in Hamburg and he wants to rid himself of the millions of euros left to him by his corrupt Russian father.
German Intelligence Philip Seymour Hoffman ties him to a Muslim philanthropist who is a leading financier for a variety of charitable organizations who do good throughout the world.
But they PSH strongly believe that the philanthropist is also funding terrorism. This John le Carre novel is well presented with a terrific cast - a tension filled plot - and very compelling dialogue.
If you are looking for action, watch the latest Bruce Willis flick, this is all "between the temples" kind of stuff. The interesting tension is between the German Intelligence community PSH who want to parley this situation into more intelligence, so they can catch bigger fish; and the enforcement and political arms of the German government - who basically want to apprehend the suspected bad guys and make a media splash.
The story plays out in a edgy fashion - I won't tell you the ending. It is not necessarily what we want to see, but seems to reflect the realities of the current political situation in the world.
The saddest part of the film is the knowledge that this was Philip Seymour Hoffman's final film. Drugs, despair and depression have robbed us of one of the greatest acting talents of our time.
He truly was one of a kind - I feel cheated by his leaving. If you see it, and I hope you do, you must watch the special features - the interview with John le Carre.
Right after watching his interview I went in to speak to my wife and I heard a discussion on Fox which perfectly mimicked the topic and concerns he was expressing in the interview.

But at the same time it is incredibly true to the intent of the story. It's exactly what a really good adaptation should be.
It takes a novel, respects its intent but it becomes something of its own. Goofs During the first meeting between Annabel Richter and Thomas Brue, Richter hands Brue a hand-written an account number on a piece of paper that was torn from her Daytimer's personal organizer.
The sound editor overdubbed the sound of a perforated piece of paper being removed from a pad. When the note is seen by the audience, it is a piece of paper that had been bound by a hole punch and would have made a different sound when torn from its source.
