Reading the reviews here, I've seen that only people from countries which have dealt with communism understood the true meaning of this film. It can put off with the amount of blood and dead corpses shown in the movie, but I've seen worse in the American ones. Also we can't find a good character here - all of the policemen are cynical and brutal. Their boss is burning down archives which may contain important things from the old times. But we see the reaction when gangsters shoot to the officers - they're confused, nobody has ever shoot to a policeman in the past. We see the reign of mafia, the first ruthless bosses which America met in the 20s and Poland in the 90s and the officers who found a job there after being fired because they used to serve the wrong people. It shows us how a normal man has no influence on his life during a political transformation and how hard it is to change way of thinking when you were raised in a completely different situation. The film has great witty dialogs and the characters are constructed finely as well. Almost all the roles are played by the best Polish actors and in my opinion it's one of the best Polish movies since the 1989.
