» All The Old Knives » begins with two former lovers meeting in a nearly deserted restaurant. As CIA agents, Henry ( Chris Pine ) and Celia ( Thandiwe Newton ) were once stationed together in Vienna. At that time they were a couple when a plane was hijacked in the Austrian capital, which ended disastrously with the deaths of all passengers and the terrorists.
Years later, Henry, who is still working for the US espionage service, is commissioned by his superior ( Laurence Fishburne ) to finally uncover the background to the catastrophe. Because one thing is clear: there must have been a mole in the Vienna CIA office who collaborated with the perpetrators and has been able to keep his identity secret to this day. Will Celia Henry, who has long since quit the job for personal reasons, help shed light on the matter?
