Finished watching this 2016 movie starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. It is about a Canadian-born agent who learns that his wife is an alleged Nazi-era German spy and, in case the allegation is proven to be true, has to kill her himself… or else.

The pirated link where the movie can be played does not have any available subtitles, so I did not understand one/tenth of the movie as the lines are in French language. Oh, I did understand super basic words, especially when the Morocco-based German ambassador speaks in front of the audience before getting killed. Things like, “Ladies, Gentlemen, Comrades of the Party… blah blah… of the great nation…” I must admit I did not have the heart to improve my French skills, now I am suffering its consequences.

Brad Pitt has started to approach the senior age-look. He still looks young in the scene, where he is staring at Marion Cotillard while they are on the bed, a year after their baby is born. Otherwise, he is going to that direction. Growing old gracefully. Thank you, Brad Pitt, for those years when you were young. You gave us Fight Club, Interview with the Vampire, 12 Monkeys, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and many more. You will always be one of those amazing actors for me. You, Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves. The three of you. Wish you would have a movie with these two guys (wishful thinking) as you three truly kick many asses (have yet to see Keanu Reeves’ John Wick: Chapter 2).

In any case, the first part of the movie is a bit boring for me as I did not understand French language. However, as the movie progressed, I also became more interested. I need to see it again, with subtitles, to develop an in-depth understanding of it.

I shall update this whenever I can as I consider this post unfinished.
