Based on a true story, Farewell (aka L’Affaire Farewell) documents one of the most astounding tales of espionage to come out of the Cold War. Directed by Academy Award nominated Christian Carion (Merry Christmas), FAREWELL features a stellar cast including award-winning actor/director Emir Kusturica (Black Cat, White Cat, The Good Thief), award-winning actor/director Guillaume Canet (Tell No One, Little White Lies) and award-winning actress Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader, Control). The film also stars Willem Dafoe (Antichrist, Spiderman 3), David Soul (Jerry Springer: The Opera) and Fred Ward (Short Cuts, Management).
In 1981 Colonel Grigoriev (Emir Kusturica) of the KGB (real name Vladimir Vetrov), disenchanted with what the communist ideal has become under Brezhnev, decides he is going to change the world. Discreetly, he makes contact with a French engineer working for Thompson in Moscow, Pierre, (Guillaume Canet) and little by little passes on documents to him – mainly concerning the United States – information which would constitute the most important Cold War espionage operation known to date. During a period of two years, French President Francois Mitterrand (Philippe Magnan) was to personally vet the documents supplied by this source in Moscow, to whom the French Secret Service gave the codename ‘Farewell’.
