The Informer is a film that deals with issues, which, have not yet been discussed by many Polish filmmakers. The screenplay has been inspired by the events that shook the closest family of the director, when the Wildstein List had been published. It is a film about big politics and our petty, everyday lives, about truth and lies in the family, about love and solitude. It emphasises the most basic rule: to keep your head cool, against all odds.

As the director put it: “It is a very sad comedy, told in a nostalgic tone. The politics in the film makes it very grotesque. It is by far the most difficult film I have ever made”.
