Editorial Reviews

With inter-twining stories detalining the unscrupulous rules that govern foreign espionage after the Cold War, TRADE ROUTES is a brazen look at current international politics and American foreign policy. Set against an Eastern European nation's election, in a country that a few short years ago was the most notorious communist dictatorship, the film charts the paths of five characters; An aging CIA officer relegated to an outpost due to his scandalous connections to rendition and torture; A young attractive economic advisor who seeks out the toughest assignment to proof her worth, as an economic advisor at the US Bulgarian embassy; The ambitious Bulgarian Prime Minister's chief of staff - facing a tough re-election; An American political consultant "hired to fix" the prime minister's election; and a retired member of the Bulgarian Communist State Police... these five character destinies intertwine in the weeks leading up to the elections in a fledgling democracy, exposing the human costs of political power-brokering, through the secret exchanges between nations.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

A real spy movie; no chase/fight seens or death defying stunts or wow factor gadgets, but the most realistic portrail of how compeating interests and organizations use and abuse everyone they touch. Grity real world political intregue at its best. This movie is a must see; put your thinking cap on, pay attention, and get ready to have your eyes opened!

Hello, I normally don't write reviews but want to for this film as it did not get much press. It is a shame, it should have as it is a very well made, smart drama political thriller.

Trade Routes offers many viewers something they need to know and need to think about.

But this film is worth checking out as the acting was good, the directing was good, the film looked amazing - perhaps due to the locations - but it did really look well.

This type of film makes you question many things and it is must see so please check it out ASAP, thanks.

A political thriller; not much in the way of action at all. But if you're into some mind games, this is probably worth your time. Set in Bulgaria and the scenery is pleasing; definitely eastern European if Bulgaria is not the actual set. One or two actors are very good; the others average. The plot is shallow and simple enough, but has some twists that bring some unexpected turns.
An election is reaching the end game and political forces clash in a mix of old school cold war intelligence games and western influence peddling. The down side is that America is once again played as the corrupt snake in the grass attempting to circumvent the "free processes of an independent nation". Though not a Hollywood flick, it's definitely of their mindset. A more interesting and realistic view would have been to actually incorporate historical forces that helped to make that nation what it is today. That may have been a bit too much work, however.
2.5 - 3 stars.

I saw this at the Chicago Film festival a few years ago, and it remains an excellent, sublte political thriller set in Bulgaria. The actors - both the Americans and the legendary Bulgarians - are well cast, and the plot how power while avoiding melodrama.

Watch it!

This is an unusually well crafted film in every respect. The characters--the whole cast-- is believable. The plot is quietly riveting. Better than the John le Carré films, save for Tinker, Tailor, and I'd rank with the 'Good Shepard' for historical faithfulness.

The viewers of this movie were pretty much spot on. Always enjoy watching foreign movies, and this one did not disappoint. The length of this movie was just right.
So if your into a spy/drama movie just click.
