Breach tells the true story of the arrest of Robert Hanssen, considered a leading expert on the Soviet Union / Russia within the U.S. intelligence, specifically the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation). As you can see, this hole (or "Breach," the title in English) caused a huge controversy, with the right to official pronouncement and expulsion, direct or veiled, dozens of officials and Russian diplomats in March 2001, shortly after Hanssen's arrest.Featured evident to the magnificent performance of Chris Cooper, whose previous work includes the impressive American Beauty, Syriana and Silver City. Cooper plays the theme with an aplomb worthy of one of the most respected actors of our time. Catholic fervor of the utter despair, through rigorous military, the figure of Robert Hanssen comes to life and strength through the actor.Hanssen is liable for damages billionaires, with sending information absolutely confidential, as the president's plan of escape in case of nuclear attack, and deliver the positions of approximately 50 U.S. agents, several of them killed in these actions of counter-espionage.Typical fruit of the Cold War between the two nuclear superpowers, the spy has yielded several stories and some celebrities. The most famous one was the agent in the service of the Queen, James Bond. The difference in approach in Breach is that the story takes place within the intelligence within the FBI, showing it as inappropriate and even obsolete. Bureaucracy and corruption are part of the system, up to exchange the old office computers with new ones, which are boxed in the hallways.
In the film, Robert summons his assistant, played by Ryan Phillippe, just to get the computers, instead of his assistant who wanted to fill out forms and wait for a future delivery, using the excuse that "forms are for bureaucrats."In another scene, Robert harshly criticizes his assistant - a person actually infiltrated by the FBI to monitor it - for considering an installation service for an internet point in the office, to assist, should be done by a specific employee and not by Robert, who climbed onto the table and arming himself the connection. The answer, dry: "OK, let someone who earns a few thousand dollars a year here and get moving on a computer that has millions of dollars in information."Finally, Robert was arrested in February 2001 after over 25 years of service, and sentenced to life imprisonment. His regime includes prison in solitary confinement 23 hours a day. Robert's story deserves to be known, is the disappointment against the cruel and vindictive role of this American state, is paradigm shift for the model citizen of the American dream, whose bark "winning" (good husband, good father and grandfather, faithful to the church, etc..) only involves, not hiding the fact, the interior dark and far from simplistic.
