Very good portrayal of Iraqi war
24 July 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

This film was also very popular in my home-country, Russia, since we always loved and do Polish cinema. This film is another must as it vividly and truthfully depicts the events of the Iraqi war of 1990. Here, we see how CIA agents are driven from Iraq kith the help of Polsih Intelligence officers. What is really nice in this film is the atmosphere - you do feel this terrible heat, you feel the sun and the sand on your burnt skin and you almost start swallowing sweat on your lips. The film really reproduces the hostile Iraqi weather and likewise hostile soldiers. The final scene when the CI agents are drunk deliberately and must speak Polish in order to be taken for Polish workers and be let go free is just excellent. The play of two Polish mega-stars - Linda and Kondrat - is also very strong. They are cold, firm and exact, just as people had to be there not to be killed. Very good film, both entertaining and serious.
