The Aquarium - Akwarium DVD
by Richard Brzostek Date Added: Friday 04 April, 2008
The Aquarium (Akwarium) is a Polish movie the communist censors would probably not have allowed to be made. It was produced in 1996, just a few years after the collapse of Communism in Poland. The Aquarium brings us into the secret world of Soviet espionage. It is based on a true story of Victor Suvorov, who worked for GRU, a secret organization similar to the KGB.

The story shows us the transformation of Victor from a reckless tank commander to a calculating spy. The movie shows us how Victor is selected to join this ultra secret organization. We get to see a glimpse of the training and world of tricks they must endue where they are never sure if they are on a real mission or are just being tested. Victor is warned during his inanition into GRU that nothing ever works out with the Aquarium and that whoever joins it is in for life and the only way to leave it is dead.

One aspect that makes this film fascinating is that is more than entertainment and provides so much education. The movie touches upon a topic that is not too well know. The Aquarium is the name of the headquarters of GRU (an organization that is not nearly as well known as the KGB). The interesting story is also pared with great acting. The mentor of Victor is played by Janusz Gajos who, as usual, performs superbly. There is great drama and suspense in this spy thriller.

The Aquarium is probably not for everyone as it is a serious movie. Those that enjoy drama/thrillers are most likely to enjoy it. Put aside your ideas about spies and get ready for an amazing story based on life. The faint of heart should be warmed, there will be more than a few shocking parts along the way in this thriller.
