Movie 96 Minutes

This is the amazing true story of one of history’s greatest spies--Israel’s master spy, Eli Cohen--who, in the 1960’s was sent to Syria, via Argentina, and was so successful in infiltrating the highest levels of the Syrian government, that he was nominated to be their Deputy Minister of Defense. Unbelievable. And, all true! Further, his incredible mission insured his country’s success in the June 1967 Six-Day War.

John Shea (“Missing,” “Baby M,” “The New Adventures Of Superman”) stars as Eli Cohen, who led a double life as a husband-father and businessman-spy. And, Eli Wallach (“Baby Doll,” “The Magnificent Seven,” “Tough Guys”) co-stars as head of Israel’s Mossad, the secret intelligence agency, who is in charge of Cohen’s extraordinary mission.

The Impossible Spy

REVIEWS:

  • "A portrait of spies and spying that is as chilling as it is compelling."
    -- The New York Times

  • "Not every true story makes a movie as riveting as this one."
    -- The Wall Street Journal

  • "A marvelous film told in the grand tradition of a John Le Carre novel. Shea is simply terrific in the role of Eli Cohen. This is a top-notch thriller made all the more so by its factual basis."
    -- Chicago Sun-Times

  • "Fascinating. John Shea is surprisingly effective as Eli Cohen and Eli Wallach as the leader of Israeli intelligence."
    -- The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

  • "A real-life spy thriller cloaked in spellbinding performances. What 'The Impossible Spy' does better than any other spy movie in recent history is present both sides of the story. Shea's performance is remarkably subtle and fine-tuned."
    -- Austin American-Statesman

JUNE 5-10

2017

50th ANNIVERSARY

of the

SIX-DAY WAR

Eli Cohen's extraordinary spying mission in Syria in the 1960's was vital in saving Israel
in the June 1967 Six-Day War. (Also known as the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.)

    His guile and fluency in Arabic enabled him to climb to the upper echelons
of the Syrian government--and be considered for nomination as the
Defense Minister of Syria, 3rd in line to be the President of Syria. Incredible! And, all true!
