First up is the Polish film “Vinci”. Released in 2004 and directed by Directed by Juliusz Machulski, the film is a thriller, comedy, drama, all rolled into one, centering on the planned heist of a major painting of Leonardo Da Vinci “Lady with an Ermine” which has been returned from Japan to the Czartoryski Museum in Krakow. Art thief Cuma (Robert Wieckiewicz) asks his friend Julian (Borys Szyc), a former colleague, for help without knowing that Julian is now a police officer. Julian goes along with Cuma's plans for the theft, but meanwhile plots to switch the painting for a reproduction, so that the precious original will not be not lost. He consults old forger Hagen (Jan Machulski), who assigns the task of making a copy to talented student Magda (Kamila Baar).
The ambassador of the Republic of Poland, Waldemar Dubaniowski, will introduce the film. The Embassy will also serve drinks and snacks, after the screening. The film shows in room 201 on the second floor of River City Bangkok. Admission is free.
