In the scene on the waste dump, Olo Zwirski points a gun towards 'Nowy'. When seen from Nowy's perspective, Olo holds his gun with one hand, and when seen from the side, he holds his gun with both hands. See more »
Definitely NOT sponsored by the Polish Tourism Department...
I was surprised to see that a sequel to this film was made. Not because Psy isn't well crafted but because I didn't think there was anyone left in Poland by the time the credits rolled. I don't think I've ever seen so many heads exploding or bodies convulsing as they're pumped full of bullets. The plot revolves around the antics of a group of seriously hard police adjusting to a more restrictive life, blamed by society for the decisions of their depraved former masters. It's definitely interesting, with good performances (although those who enjoyed the wonderful Janusz Gajos in Three Colors: White may find him less charming here) and weirdly beautiful cinematography, but let's just say it's not a good choice for a date movie unless you're dating Aileen Wuornos.
