Adam is young and very ambitious journalist working in local newspaper - 'Pomerania Courier' - in Gdansk (Poland). One day he receives a stamped envelope by mail. There's a text in Latin written on that envelope: 'Tibi et Igni' (eng. 'For you and the fire'). He finds 3 photos of his fiancée Annie inside the envelope. Annie claims that these photos were made in places where she has never been and with people she has never met. Adam starts his own private investigation in order to find out who and why sent him these pictures. The investigation leads him to discovery of a terrifying truth. Written by Tomasz Zasada

Brilliant little gem from Poland, watch it if you can!
25 May 2009 | by (Sol-3, Europe, Germany) – See all my reviews

When I watched this movie, I didn't have high expectations for it as I was told it was a very cheap one. But never judge a movie by its production costs! I was completely taken by surprise, because this is one of the best movies I've seen this year! The characters are great, the protagonist is a complete villain without any morals but still the viewer feels sympathy for him. He is a journalist who will do anything for a good story, no matter if he has to plant evidence himself, as we see in the beginning of the movie. He is a great manipulator and in complete control of the people around him.

But one day, he receives a letter with seemingly harmless photographs of his girlfriend, the only strange thing is she tells him she has never been to these places nor met any of the people in the photographs. So he starts his own investigation, and gradually loses control of the world around him and his whole life is falling to pieces.

The movie has a very creepy atmosphere that slowly builds up to the shocking conclusion. All of this is very well done and although the movie runs for almost two hours, it doesn't get boring for a single minute.

If you can get your hands on a DVD, watch it by all means.
