Synopsis / Plot
At the height of the Cold War, a KGB officer contacts the French government with an offer of information. Starring two filmmakers in the lead roles, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One, Anything You Say) and Emir Kusturica (Life is a Miracle, Underground, Arizona Dream), Farewell recounts a crucial episode in the Cold War. Hoping to sabotage the Brejnev regime and give his son a better future, disillusioned KGB colonel Gregoriev (Kusturica) makes contact with Pierre (Canet), an ordinary French engineer working for Thompson. He gives him explosive confidential documents about a network of KGB moles in the West, leaking crucial scientific information to the Soviet Union. Torn between his fear of putting his family in harm’s way and his desire to know more, Pierre brings the documents to the French government and soon gets involved against his will in a highly sensitive espionage affair.
