Impossible to watch !
12 June 2007 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This film is as far from Hollywood style as Poland is.

There are some impressive ideas in the movie (like some surreal scenery) but unfortunately everything else is a total scrap.

Film was shot on East-German ORWO film of deplorable quality giving it a look worse than amateur 16mm shots.

Sentences are completely absurd - you are lucky if you do not understand polish ! Acting reminds mad mumbling of psychiatric clinic patients....

I was a small kid when I fist learned about this production - it was in 1978, they were taking some shoots in Cracow where I lived. I was a fan of SF, watching then Space 1999, Star Wars and Japanese films about Godzilla. So obviously I was very excited about this SF production taking place in my city. Then there were no knows about the movie. Ten years later it was show on Polish TV - I was angry, because it disappointed me totally.

It is "unwatchable" !
