Eminent Domain
(1990, Canada)

Language: English

Josef Borski, high level communist party member in Poland, enjoys a good life as the politburo minister, but one day he arrives to his work and it unable to get in. His security pass in invoked, he cannot enter his office building, he cannot contact his secretary, all of his colleagues suddenly turn away from him. Undaunted by this unexpected turn of events Borski tries to figure out what happened, what could have he possibly done to become to pariah, but he has no clue what is behind it. He turns his attention towards his family, his wife Mira and daughter Ewa, but soon discovers that his every move is closely watched by officers of secret police. Feeling hounded he learns that his wife’s job might be in danger and that his friend, Ben, was just arrested. And then the tragedy strikes...

Canadian movie filmed in post-communist Poland (or rather soon after the transformation has started) was based on story by a Polish emigrant and thus contains the unusual look at the communism. With Donald Sutherland and Anne Archer playing the main characters this rather simple story turns into intriguing drama. The quality of the movie leaves much to be desired, but the underlying story is interesting and has some universal truths to tell, although in some parts it lacks reality and is a bit naive. Nevertheless it is interesting to see Donald Sutherland walking through Polish streets as the country was cutting ties with communism.
