The Converted

Lugubrious political satire set in a Polish industrial town in 1981. Tomasz is a Party animal who readily agrees to spy on a Solidarity rally for his bosses in return for a promised holiday in Bulgaria. He later finds himself arrested for his subversive activities. Very Eastern European, this. Zamachowski (Three Colours: White) plays Tomasz as a benign, bandly-legged buffoon, a kind of post-revolutionary Norman Wisdom. But as for his conversion, and the logic of his superiors, most mystifying.
