dir. Michał Kwieciński, Polska, 2022, 125 min

Frankfurt 1943. The titular character, Filip, is a typical cosmopolitan and a seducer incapable of deeper feelings. In Poland, he lost his entire family. Being in Nazi Germany, he hides his Jewish origins and often escapes death. He works as a waiter in a restaurant of an exclusive hotel, carelessly enjoying all the luxuries of life surrounded by beauty, women, and friends from all over Europe. However, when the war begins pick up bloody harvest among those close to him, the intricately built world around him crumbles like a house of cards. Soon, allied bombers will wipe this bustling Tower of Babel off the earth. The film was made based on a screenplay inspired by Leopold Tyrmand's novel of the same title.
