This 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. In Polish with English subtitles.
