Interesting but not satisfy attempt...
2 November 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This move is an interesting commentary to political situation in Poland, after the fall of Eastern Block. Corrupted politics, poverty, birth of fundamentalism. Most of the society are disappointed with the political and economical reality. It's a short way to anger and fury.

However it's not a very good movie. I like the idea of portraying country and it's society in grotesque way, but the whole plot could be better. In the rush of mad and exaggerate events, there is distinct lack of good, interesting story. There isn't an single character to be liked in this movie, which I can understand, while it's a critical overview of politics.

Overall I rather recommend it for those who'd like to see unusual (in many aspects) polish movie or Szulkin fans.
