The Optimists (Optimisty, Оптимисты) is a Russian spy drama series that brings a 1960’s “Mad Men” aesthetic to the Nikita Khrushchev-era, set during peak Cold War.
At the cinema, Muratov secretly meets with a French producer. Biryukov raises the stakes again – the department, which has just changed the course of history, should not engage in ordinary routine work. Soon there will be a four-sided summit in Paris, and it is important for the Soviets to get a reliable ally.
