Intelligent and funny
24 December 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Without doubt, when it comes to comedies, "Kiler" is one of the best things that modern Polish cinema has to offer. The story of cab driver mistaken for a professional assassin is really hilarious, from his short stay in prison to the surprising ending - we get tons and tons of laughter. Brilliant characters' creation really contributes to that: you will fall about when fat gangster Siara with his redneck mentality or wannabe-Dirty Harry policeman Ryba appear on screen.

The plot itself is very well-written, containing some unexpected twists; enemies deal with each other rather in entertaining game of wits then with shooting or brute force - if I remember correctly, the single actual death in the movie is a result of funny accident with salt container. You wouldn't expect that from a movie about an assassin, would you? ;) Music is great - it is performed by Polish well-known "poetic rock band", Elektryczne Gitary (The Electric Guitars). Their lyrics comment the action of movie in an ironic, sarcastic way; unfortunately, they would be extremely difficult to understand if you're not a native Pole.

All in all, that movie is a must. Correct me if I'm wrong, but no better Polish comedy was ever produced after "Kiler".
