How to Politely Decline a Cup of Tea

Andrei_Nekrasov.jpgFrom the New York Times review of Andrei Nekrasov‘s film “Poisoned by Polonium: The Litvinenko File”: More personal essay than political diatribe, “Poisoned by Polonium” is not without its lighter moments. During a conversation with Andrei Lugovoi, the former Russian intelligence officer now charged by British authorities with Mr. Litvinenko’s murder, the filmmaker is offered tea. He politely declines. You can see Nekrasov’s 2004 film “Disbelief” here.
