Check out the trailer for Kompromat, an upcoming espionage thriller movie based on true events. Kompromat stars Gilles Lellouche and Joanna Kulig. It is written by Caryl Ferey and Jérôme Salle.
Gilles Lellouche stars as Mathieu, a gregarious and dedicated diplomat who accepts a posting to Irkutsk as the head of Siberia’s Alliance Francaise. He hopes the change will be good for his family and struggling marriage, but before long Mathieu’s staging of cultural events and support of artistic expression sees him fall afoul of local authorities. Accused of a terrible crime, he soon realizes someone has fabricated a case with Russia’s Federal Security Service – he has been framed. Arrested, imprisoned and isolated, Mathieu has nowhere to turn. Defending himself is impossible, the French authorities are helpless – it seems he has no choice: to try and escape.
Kompromat, directed by Jérôme Salle, will be available in theaters and on demand on January 27, 2023.
