Standing ovations, great reviews and top marks for Roman Polanski's film since the time of 'The Pianist'. The epic thriller "Officer and Spy" based on the best-selling novel by Robert Harris is one of the peak achievements in the career of Roman Polanski. At the festival in Venice, the film was awarded the Grand Jury Award and the prestigious FIPRESCI award, and they are the first laurels for a Polish artist in a Venetian event for a decade.
"Officer and Spy" tells the story based on facts of Alfred Dreyfus, a French officer sentenced to life imprisonment for treason of his homeland and sent into exile. Georges Picquart, the new head of intelligence, soon after Dreyfus's imprisonment discovers that evidence against the convict has been prepared. Contrary to his superiors, Picquart decides to reveal the truth at all costs. At stake in this game is not only Picquart's brilliantly started career, but also a great international scandal that will change the course of history. Starring: Oscar-winning Jean Dujardin ("Artist", "Wall Street Wolf"), Louis Garrel ("Dreamers") and Emmanuelle Seigner ("Venus in Fur"). The author of the pictures is the outstanding Polish cameraman Paweł Edelman, from the film "Pianist" permanently cooperating with Polanski.
Roman Polański tells the story of one of the most famous scandals in history. I have long wanted to make a film about the Dreyfus case, not as a costume drama, but as a spy story. In this way you can show the similarity of the historical scandal to what is happening in today's world: persecution of minorities, absurd security measures, secret military tribunals, out of control intelligence agencies, concealing facts by governments, creating fake news and furious press. The perfect intrigue shows a system in which a self-winding hate spiral dangerously begins to resemble the present. "An Officer and a Spy" is a film about how history repeats itself, and one man, in spite of everyone fighting for justice, can change the course of events.
