Murder, seduction and intrigue in the Kremlin!

When three murder victims are discovered in Moscow's Gorky Park with their faces and fingertips removed, Detective Renko (Hurt) is determined to identify the bodies and find the killer, but when the clues point toward the involvement of the KGB, Renko is hunted by the secret police and confronted by an intricate web of deception and treachery reaching to the highest political levels. Directed by Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough) with a great supporting cast that includes Ian Bannen (The Offence) and Richard Griffiths (Withnail & I).

Critical Acclaim

"William Hurt is superb as a Moscow militia detective caught between his desires to be simply a good cop and the unfathomable motives of the secret Soviet government, all complicated by an unexpected love for Joanna Pacula." - VARIETY



"It remains a taut, clever thriller throughout, with Mr. Apted's direction establishing its intensity immediately and sustaining it well."- THE NEW YORK TIMES
