    • Synopsis
    • A maniacal informant creates his own phantom secret-police department. He recruits a group of unsuspecting intellectuals to spy on each other and after the fall of communism uses his secret archive to wreak havoc on the government. The movie offers a paradoxical twist in the standard representation of totalitarianism as a society of victims and victimizers. This is a story without innocents. Secret policing reveals its dark nature not only in its nauseating cruelties, but most suggestively in its deviant pleasures.
