Filip, 2022, 125 min.

Directed by: Michał Kwieciński

The film is based on the semi-biographical novel of the same name by Leopold Tyrmand (Filip, 1961).

In 1941, Filip, a young Polish Jew, escapes the massacre of the Warsaw Ghetto. Two years later, posing as French, Filip works as a waiter in a restaurant in Frankfurt in an exclusive hotel among other forced laborers from all over Europe. He makes the most of the world, surrounded by luxury and lonely German women. His life is one great reckless provocation. However, when the war begins to take a bloody toll among those closest to him, the intricately built world that surrounds him crumbles like a house of cards.
