Escalating events begin when U.N. translator Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. With the words "The Teacher will never leave this room alive," in an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia's world only grows more nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitnesses' past and her secretive world of global connections, the more suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own personal heartache, keep her safe? Though they must depend on one another, Silvia and Tobin couldn't be more different. Silvia's strengths are words, diplomacy and the subtleties of meaning, while Tobin is all about instinct, action and reading into the most primal human behaviors. Now, as the danger of a major assassination on U.S. soil grows and Silvia's life hangs in the balance, Silvia and Tobin play out a gripping dance of evasion and revelation that keeps them both guessing as they race to stop a terrifying international crisis before it's too late.


A great plot,great acting and Great film!, 9 April 2005 Author: fandago2003 from Greece Having the director decided to release this movie worldwide in Greece I felt in a way obliged to support his decision and go and watch the movie. I must I say I really like movies like this and I was furthermore enthusiastic that Nicole Kidman was starring in that film along with Sean Penn! I enjoyed the direction very much not only because for the first time you could actually see the interiors of the UN building but also because the exterior takes were magnificent as well. As far as the plot is concerned I must say that I was satisfied because there was nothing that you couldn't apprehend and it was very well tight. Don't expect to see an extravagant full of mystery story that will confuse you and mislead you but a storyline that is tight enough and well said. The stars act very well giving their best effort to support the movie except maybe the act of Sean Penn which seemed to me as he was tired throughout the movie but that again may well be justified!!! Overall, I liked the film pretty much.Even though there was not so much action as you may have encountered in other movies(i.e.Enemy of the State) it can been seen without any hesitation and you'll like it in the end. To me it was a nice break from all those action-full of special effects-plot less movies. Besides, the story could become a reality and I like this kind of films!
