You know the song which ends the film, La Mer? We choose it just because we fantasised about George Smiley listening to it home alone. We wanted to somehow give an impression of his inner being. So the choice of the kind of music he could possibly listen to was very important. It could absolutely not be Beethoven. And not something too typically British, like Music Hall.

But then I found this recording of La Mer done by Julio Iglesias from the beginning of the 1970’s, recorded live at the Olympia in Paris. Julio Iglesias was a great singer at this time. I have a few albums which are damn good. Julio Iglesias version of La Mer becomes representative of everything the world of MI6 isn’t. Instead of damp streets and old men smoking in rooms it’s sea and sun and the beach, perhaps a golden bracelet around the wrist. And so we get a more romantic image of George Smiley.

- Tomas Alfredson on why he chose Julio Iglesias singing La Mer to end Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

One of my favourite film endings this. It’s exactly like Tomas says, it’s like opening a window to world so very, very different to theirs. And the melancholic irony of the song being played just heightens the bleakness and the tragedy of the events in the most beautiful way possible.

Gary Oldman = Tumblr - just fangirling over British actors!

David Dencik. One of my favorite Scandinavian actors (would love to call him wholly Danish but he is in fact both Danish and Swedish) - you may have seen him as Toby Esterhase in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, in The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo (both Swedish and British version), in War Horse or maybe even as Reverend Guldberg in A Royal Affair, but I first saw and fell in love with him him in the brilliant Danish tv-series Lykke in which he played the main love interest, Anders Assing, to the title character.
A brilliant actor.

If Colin Firth’s character is gay and his lover’s name is “Jim”, the whole film will be a tragic love story. 

Dear Colin, you have no luck with the lovers named Jim, you have to admit it.

Such larks and fun this film is while speaking such truth about the nature of obsession - also, these two are gold whenever they are in a scene together! Aannnnddd… my Haydon/Prideaux pheels are back - fuck…

The deleted scene where Gary Oldman cooks an egg.

And the apron - oh, dear lord, the apron! And the neighbours playing music, and all I could think was “no way this man could ever like Rock and Roll - of course he hates it!” And then I remember that Gary played Sid Vicious and I flail at his amamazingness!
