Mathieu (Gilles Lellouche) is a dedicated diplomat who accepts a posting to Irkutsk as the head of Siberia’s Alliance Française. He hopes the change will be good for his family, but it’s not long before his support of artistic expression sees him fall afoul of the local Russian authorities.
Accused of a terrible crime and imprisoned, Mathieu soon realises he has been framed by the Federal Security Service with nowhere to turn – and no choice but to try and escape. Based on incredible true events, Kompromat delivers pulse-pounding cinema at its most compelling.
