Brief Explanation
Two Polish men, Tomek and his friend, are seen in a windswept landscape peeling potatoes. They are concerned that the boring film they feature in will not make the cut at the film festival. Tomek's friend suggests that killing someone could be the answer they are looking for. Geoffrey Rush mystically appears in the shot and Tomek is informed this will be his replacement. Geoffrey Rush is now playing the part of Tomek but to the dismay Tomek's friend, it is clear that even Geoffrey Rush will not save the film. Tagline: Melbourne International Film Festival "Only the best films make the cut".
