Weak and shallow plot and result is a dismal movie
19 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was unlucky to see this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival and now by chance I came across it on IDMB. I was hoping it might have been a movie I missed and after realizing what it is I decided to post my comment.

I can't believe how this pathetic movie garnered some awards as it appears to have. The plot is banal and approaches stupid as the unconvincing downfall of this man is portrayed. Somehow the director tries to portray that hard work will get you nowhere in post-communist Poland and the attachment with a gang lifestyle also leads to a calamity. The ending is so abrupt and unexpected that it leaves the audience wondering whether the film reel missed a splicing.

I would like to watch a Polish movie worthy of the time to see it and this one falls so far behind that and I truly regret the wasted time.
