A NIGHT DEDICATED TO SWISS DIRECTOR DANIEL SCHMID
(1937-2006)

“Beresina or the Last Days of Switzerland”

A comedy directed by Daniel Schmid starring Elena Panova, Geraldine Chaplin, Marina Confalone, Martin Benrath, Chloé Seyssel, Yvan Darvas and Stefan Kurt.

The movie will be introduced by Thomas Nellen, make-up designer and collaborator on Daniel Schmid’s movies. He is also known for his contribution to movies such as “10,000 BC” and “The Patriot” among others.

This dark comedy tells the story of lovely Irina, a Russian call girl who ends up in a wonderland in the Alps. She increasingly has dealings with a clientele from the worlds of business, politics, the military and the media. In faraway Russia a family clan keenly follows her social climb. Pressed into service as an informer, Irina finds herself completely lost in what for her remains an impenetrable labyrinth of interest groups. Finding herself blackmailed, she is left with no choice but to spy on her clients. Eventually, Irina sets in motion a plan for the overthrow of the government: the Beresina alarm. The fate of the heroine, and indeed of the whole country, begins to take an unexpected turn.
