Goofs

Kramer had a plan of framing Kwinto by making him open the safe (which contains Justysia and money), then trapping him and claiming that he was caught in the act of robbing. This plan would obviously fail, even if fully conducted, because Justysia would testify that she was imprisoned in the safe, and the teacher would testify that Justysia was abducted from the school.

Vabank 2 – The Decent Sequel
20 July 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

In 1985, Vabank 2 was made, and to what high expectation! And it was worth waiting, since the sequel is none the worse. All the familiar guys and gals are here. Evil Kramer runs away from prison with the help of the hilarious crook Sztyc, Kwinto is threatened to be murdered, and the tight spiral of adventures begins anew. Here we see all the brilliant cast – Jan Machulski, Beata Tyszkiewicz, Leonard Pietrazak and many many others. They play with such evident infectious pleasure that you simple cannot breathe out during the film. All is here – kidnapping, murder, fire in the garage, terrible revenge of Kramer, and the extremely interesting intrigue about Kwinto's death. You cannot say for sure if he was really killed or not. Humor is everywhere here – smart lines of each actor, impossibly funny part of the prison director, as well as of masqueraded Nazi officers. Up to the end, you cannot guess what the final may be like. And the only sad part here is that you may see those Nazis and feel that very very soon the real fascist armies will take the whole Poland… This film is so clever and bright that it may be praised as one of the all-time-best sequels ever made, along with Matrix 2 or Star Wars. Highly recommended for the connoisseurs of intelligent humor and cleverly thought over plot.
