Great movie, great music, great landscapes......
25 July 2003 | by (Rzeszów, Poland) – See all my reviews

It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. And it's not because of the fact that it was made by a Polish director. "Bandyta" is a very deep and difficult movie. Great characters of Elena and Brute. What's more, if you have the opportunity to get the soundtrack buy it. But for the music, the film wouldn't be as good as it is.

Movie 9/10 Music 11/10
