Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
A look at Communism behind the Iron Curtain, this comedy is set in a posh Moscow hotel run by the hypocritical Igor (Philippe Noiret). Igor is busy making money off his black market dealings when Party officials and the KGB land at his hotel. They are looking for Jewish dissidents and just the kind of activity that is keeping Igor in good caviar. Unless he wants to shovel snow in Siberia, Igor has to find a way to safely get the Jewish dissidents out of his hotel and cover up his black market tracks.
