BERESINA - ODER DIE LETZTEN TAGE DER SCHWEIZ


SYNOPSIS
This black comedy tells the story of lovely Irina, a Russian call-girl, who finds herself in a fairy-tale Alpine country, where she comes close to becoming the last person to have any complete, utter faith in it. The somewhat shady lawyer, Dr. Alfred Waldvogel and his lady-friend, Charlotte De, introduce her to a growing clientele out of the worlds of business, politics, the military and the media. As a result Irina’s life takes an unexpected turn - together with the country as a whole.
