My Dear Spies
Director Vladimir Léon brings his brother Pierre an old suitcase he had taken from their mother’s house after she died. Inside, they find documents relating their Russian grandparents to the Soviet Intelligence in Paris before WWII. From Paris to Russia, the brothers wander among the ruins of lost worlds and unspoken stories. They talk, they sing, they drink, they meet lots of people, friends, witnesses, historians, uncovering counter-espionage reports, Soviet daily life testimonies, Gulag memories… The fears of the remote past reappear like ghosts and seem closer to us than expected.
