Very good horror film from Poland which is quite surprising for one purpose: polish horror movies aren't good. But this one is really an exception. There is good, interesting plot which contains mystery and some occult ingredients. Also inspiring is where the action took place: Sopot City in the early 1930's, right after the Nazis started to rule in Germany. There is good acting, specially the performances by Jerzy Stuhr, Grazyna Szapolowska, Michal Bajor and Wladyslaw Kowalski. Those talented actors took part in probably one of the best polish films of the decade. It's a shame there are no other as good examples of polish entertaining cinema, with exciting idea for an action and with directors like Koprowicz who had a great vision.
