The Mole Agent

(The Mole Agent)

A strange newspaper ad offers work to interested parties aged 80 to 90. Although laconically phrased, it seems to be a spy mission. Destination: retirement home. Discretion required!

Elegant Sergio, recently widowed, is deeply sensitive to others and still fit, even at 83. As a result, he’s chosen for a secret task after answering a mysterious ad: to infiltrate a retirement home and verify some suspicions. After brief espionage training, the agent enters the lion’s den and begins an investigation that mixes the humour and elan of the Pink Panther with suspense. As befits the spy genre, this award-winning film plays a double game with viewers. Things at first less apparent, emerge from below the surface, from the souls of forlorn pensioners. But as empathetic Sergio digs deeper into his secret task, the longing, humanity and loneliness of seniors rises more urgently before him.
