good but not for everybody
23 April 2004 | by (Poznan, Poland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie many times and I think that a lot of young polish people did the same. This film is not for everybody. It's almost impossible to translate original polish dialogs into english. For english speaking people is very hard to understand specific sense of humor. No one who have never been in Poland, especially in 90's will understand this movie. It will be only next part of Natural Born Killers and nothing more. In this movie Wladyslaw Pasikowski show us moment of transformation of Polish country after falling of iron curtain in very specific way. By the way, even title translation is a disaster. Polish - Psy (Pies) means in english - Dogs (Dog), and this is what polish people used to say about policeman. [Not Pigs]
