i wondered if i would like this because i was a big fan of the 1979 BBC mini series which starred sir alec guiness. i certainly was pleasantly surprised. gary oldman is superb as master spy george smiley who is brought out of retirement to search for a soviet mole in british intelligence. he's supported by three generations of wonderful british actors who effortlessly deliver solid performances. the direction and cinematography are dark, fitting the story line. this is a "don't miss" film for the holiday season.
