In 1981, disenchanted with what the communist ideal has become, KGB Colonel Grigoriev decides to change the world by passing on secret documents to Pierre, a French engineer working in Moscow. With Pierre acting as a go-between, the valuable documents find their way into the hands of France’s President Mitterrand and the French Secret Service, who give the Moscow source the codename ‘Farewell’. Based on a true story, Farewell reveals one of the most astounding espionage cases to come out of the Cold War. Directed by BAFTA Award nominated Christian Carion (Joyeux Noel), Farewell features a stellar award-winning cast including Emir Kusturica (The Good Thief), Guillaume Canet (Tell No One), Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man 3).
