Russian call girl triggers off coup d'etat in CH -- very funny comedy!
3 August 1999 | by (Basel) – See all my reviews

Russian call girl Irina (Elena Panova) is used and abused by everybody, but it takes some time until she realizes that. She enjoys Switzerland and wants to become a Swiss citizen. Several people promise to help her, but in fact they're only interested either in her services, information-wise (her customers include some v.i.p. people in Swiss politics and gov.t) or sex-wise (including her charming, angel-like naivete). Even the General (Martin Benrath), who promised to marry her in case she'd have otherwise to leave Switzerland, is in fact married and would never dream of marrying his as he calls her, "little Swiss girl". After having to deal with the harsh truth, she decides to pay the General a visit. He's not at home -- and she knows that he is chief of the subversive right-wing organization Cobra .. so it's payback time for Irina.... This is a very funny comedy, and one of the best Swiss films ... of the Nineties, in any case!
