The Mole (Kret)

Director: Rafael Lewandowski

Poland, 2010, 108 min., Polish with English subtitles

Synopsis: Pawel (Borys Szyc) in his early thirties, makes a living with his father Zygmunt (Marian Dziędziel) importing second-hand clothing from France to Poland. On his way back from one of regular "business trips", Pawel is shocked to discover his father's photo on the cover of a Polish tabloid newspaper with the accusation that he was a secret informer called THE MOLE by the communist regime. All his life, Pawel had known his father as a genuine hero of the struggle against totalitarianism and a recognized member of the "Solidarnosc" labor movement of the 80s. Suddenly he begins to doubt. Little by little, their relationships are undermined by the ghosts of the past... Preview the film here.
