The Tailor of Panama (2001)

Film details


Thriller. Englishman Harry Pendel runs a bespoke tailor's, catering for Panama's upper echelons. Believing that the man who dresses all the local dignitaries would be ideally placed to eavesdrop on high-level conversations, a British spy named Osnard recruits him. However, as a former conman, Pendel's 'information' is not quite as authentic as he claims. A dangerous game of bluff and counter-bluff ensues.
