a good movie about corruption - you do not have to be polish to understand it
Don't be put of by the daft you have to be polish to understand this movie schitck written by the other posters, it's a movie about corruption, plain and simple, and a very good one too. Also don't be put off by the barmy contention that the polish doesn't translate, there are some lines which are pretty good if you do understand polish but none of them drive the plot, certainly not the best one between Linda and a prostitute.
It's a film that explores the idea of "what next, then..." for the situation after the collapse of communism. Nothing particularly polish about that and there are movies from other ex communist countries that go over similar ground.
It should be shown in more countries because it's good. If you really must see a polish movie about polish stuff that only polish people could get their heads around, then rent yourself Pan Tadeusz.
