psychological spy thriller is a study of the methods used to shape the
personality of an individual working in the service of a totalitarian
empire. Based on the true story of a Soviet GRU spy, Victor Suvorov, who
wanders the capitals of Western Europe uncovering state secrets and
classified information. His GRU unit - whose headquarters was dubbed "the
Aquarium" - was more covert than even the KGB. When he betrays his friend
and protector, he awaits a numbing injection and evacuation to Moscow.
Based on Suvorov's novel Inside the Aquarium, the film features
stellar performances by Janusz Gajos (The
Decalogue) and Witold Pyrkosz. Polish with English subtitles.
