Crooked politicians and crooked decision makers are funny ! Crooked lawyers helping crooked politicians are funny too. If you are not an object of their machinations, that is. However, you might be an object of nefarious activities; needless to say, you have then to figure out a way to beat the crooks. Since the devil needs to be fought with fire, former criminals are an asset against crooks ... We have in this film a nice combination of political satire, a thriller, a comedy - and a love story as well.
Actors in this film are great. Anna Przybylska carries well a difficult role. Edward Lubaszenko as Mirka's grandfather makes you smile every time, even if he says only a few words. Krzysztof Kowalewski as a cabinet minister shows many different faces. Cezary Pazura made famous by the two "Killer" movies is good too. Olaf Lubaszenko has created one more good movie.
