    A filmmaking tour de force and incredibly sophisticated, suspenseful and sexy entertainment `The Russia House` stars Oscar winner Sean Connery and Oscar nominee Michelle Pfeiffer as two people caught in a web of spies and politics, whose love could prove fatal to them both.
    When Katya (Pfeiffer), a beautiful Russian book editor, attempts to send British publisher Barley Blair (Connery) a manuscript written by a noted soviet scientist, she unwittingly draws them both into a world of international espionage. The manuscript, which contains information that could alter the balance of world power, is intercepted by the West`s spy-masters who them send Blair to Russia to gain more information on the myterious document. But when Blair meets Katya, he finds himself torn between his mission and the women whose passion for her country - and for Blair - knows no bounds
