Wife of a Spy

Wife of a Spy ★★★½

Things lost in the ambiguities of war. A patient melodrama of pristine art design and wonderful neonoir cinematography, where even the element of overexposure turns into a semiotic tool. The muted, forbearing sentimental overlays of the dramatic dimension are given much pungency by the horror sequences, masterfully assembled and intensified by the tight game of expectations, stringed together through an intelligent iconography that only turns the film more tense.
