Surprisingly Pleasant Movie
21 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The sophisticated thief of art Robert "Cuma" Cuminski (Robert Wieckiewicz) is released on probation from the local prison by the corrupt Doctor Wiaderny (Jerzy Gralek) to organize the theft of the famous Leonardo Da Vinci painting "Lady with Ermine" for the dealer Gruby (Mieczyslaw Grabka). Three years ago, Cuma was accidentally arrested by the snoopy detective Wilk (Marcin Dorocinski) after a successful heist in the house of the collector Lehman, but he has not ratted his comrade Julian (Borys Szyc). Cuma meets Julian, now a police officer and law student, and invites him to steal the painting but Julian is reluctant. They hire the falsifier Tadeusz Hagen (Jan Machulski) and the talented student Magda (Kamilla Baar) to paint a replica and carefully plan the robbery in details while Detective Milk does not give a break to Cuma, who has to meet him every other day.

"Vinci" is a surprisingly pleasant movie with comedy, action and thriller. The story is a sort of a contemporary "The Sting" in Poland, with funny situations, witty dialogs, nice characters and a very enjoyable screenplay. The direction of Juliusz Machulski is excellent, giving the adequate pace to develop the simple plot of a heist in an enjoyable feature to be discovered by viewers, very well supported by a cast that has great performances. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Da Vinci – O Crime Como Uma Arte" ("Da Vinci – The Crime as an Art")
