Review
In the dying days of the Austro-Hapsburg Empire, Ukranian Jew Alfred Redl ruthlessly rises from a poverty stricken background to become a high-ranking member of the Imperial Austrian Military. But when Redl is sent to spy on the Russian Empire, he is compromised by his secret double life as a homosexual. As the world perches on the brink of war, Redl finds himself trapped in a web of deception and the mask he has worn all these years is finally peeled off. Adapted from John Osborne's play 'A Patriot for Me', this is a chilling, complex account of a man's betrayal of himself.
