Storyline

During a stormy night of grave political crisis, an expert interpreter suffers a nervous breakdown. Young diplomat Konrad Gelb is recruited to step in and interpret between the two conflicting superpower leaders, who seem to hold the fate of humanity in their hands - an absurd responsibility, which by extension rests on the shoulders of the young interpreter. He must balance the oversized egos in the room and maneuver the world's destiny to either peaceful resolution or total annihilation. Written by Anonymous

diplomacy
30 December 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The characters are familiar. Except, mazbe, the interpreters. But the young Konrad Gelb is the star of this tough negotiations, exercises of manipulations, super egos and fights for interests. And the film, scene by scene, becomes an useful introduction to the real aspects of diplomacy, by the influence of small witnesses and about the triumph of good reason. So, a dark comedy about diplomatic negotiations/ at the first sigh/ , about power/ in its essence.
