Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

No clue.  Looks like the film is produced for the Hallmark Channel, which, translated into Hungarian, means, "Run for your fucking life."

And this from the author's wiki page:

"Forsyth is a Eurosceptic Conservative. In 2003, he was awarded the One of Us Award from the Conservative Way Forward group for his services to the Conservative movement in Britain."

Sounds like here might be something better to do with your time.

Thanks! The novel and film is about Russia, that's why I thought maybe you know it, but the above info is thumbs down enough for me.

Do you travel across the north of Wales, or do you come down the Cambrian coast line through Macynlleth?

The Hallmark channel?

What's the deal with the Hallmark Channel? Is it some right-wing madhouse, think Fox or Clear Channel?

Hallmark has a virtual monopoly in the printing of stupid greeting/birthday/inspirational cards and the marketing of kitsch trinkets.

I don't think they are politically motivated like FOX, but they specialize in sappy made-for-TV films that are "appropriate for the whole family".  I think they have some backing from faith based organizations.

Their biggest offense is the promotion of attrocious acting and writing.
