- An adaptation of Leopold Tyrmand’s semi-autobiographical novel, awarded Silver Lions at the Gdynia Film Festival. Filip stands out among Polish war films thanks to a rare approach to its topic and an extraordinary performance by Eryk Kulm Jr., for which he received the Zbyszek Cybulski Award.
- Frankfurt, 1943. The eponymous protagonist Filip seems like a typical bon vivant incapable of deeper feelings. Living in the heart of Nazi Germany, he hides his Jewish origins and escapes death several times. He works as a waiter in the restaurant of an exclusive hotel and carelessly enjoys all the delights of life surrounded by luxury, beautiful women and friends from all over Europe. However, when the war starts taking its toll on his loved ones, Filip’s intricately constructed world crumbles like a house of cards. Soon, Allied bombers will wipe out this vibrant tower of Babel.
