It's a bit strange, but I would like to comment on the synopsis by gleap1. Be aware -- there are a lot of serious mistakes (who plays which part) in it!!! First passage from the synopsis: "Wiktor is having trouble with his consulate staff back at the embassy. He knows the Consul (Remo Girone) is filing derogatory reports about him to Warsaw and returns to the embassy to find the Consul sitting at the ambassador's desk." It's not Remo Girone, but Jerzy Stuhr, who plays Radca, the attaché in Polish Embassy! Second passage from the synopsis: "A second Consul (Andrzej Chyra), sponsored by Wiktor, arrives with his beautiful Russian wife, Radca (Jerzy Stuhr)" New consul's wife's name is Oksana, role played by Maria Bekker. On the other hand, the first comment (from India) puts everything right. And I can agree, the film is really very impressive and intelligently fine.
