Manifesto is a 1988 American comedy drama film directed by Dušan Makavejev and starring Camilla Søeberg, Alfred Molina, Simon Callow and Eric Stoltz.[1] It was filmed in what was Yugoslvia under the working title, "For a Night of Love", and is based on the novella Pour une nuit d'amour by Émile Zola. The screenplay concerns an attempt by revolutionaries to assassinate an autocratic central European monarch, and the inept police state that tries to find and stop them.

Plot summary[edit]

In the 1920s, the King's security chief Avanti arrives in the sleepy village of Waldheim with an array of policemen to protect the monarch on his upcoming visit. Meanwhile, the lovely Svetlana also returns to the village after 3 years away, with plans of assassination - and romance.
