Helen Mirren is, of course, a total genie of acting. My hub Nod brought home the second part of this film, not realizing there WERE two parts, but it was still quite satisfying. They built the set in some eastern european country in a soviet enclosed stadium, so it is contiguous. When she walks from room to room the cameraman follows with a steadycam. That gives us a strong sense of three-dimensional reality.
