Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this dark comedy-drama, communism has fallen in Poland after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the building that was once home to the Communist Party's Central Committee has now been taken over by that most capitalistic of enterprises, an advertising agency. A well-known Russian model under contract to the agency has gone missing, and Kuba, the firm's casting director, is told to find her as soon as possible. While the model never turns up, he does discover a beautiful young woman with whom he quickly becomes infatuated. But before Kuba can launch her into stardom in the advertising world, a series of bizarre and improbable circumstances throw his life into a tailspin. The first feature film from director Lukasz Zadrzynski, Billboard had its American premier at the 1999 Nantucket Film Festival.
