Dark and disturbing in a positive way
5 December 2009 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This movie is telling a story that could happen anywhere - if anywhere is Poland or any other communist country. The way how the things happen will remind you that the human kind has its dark side that comes out way too easily! From my point of view it is one of the most interesting new polish movies, the plot is not obvious - or at least how it goes is not, it has integrity and all the right elements any movie should have. My only complaint would be that there are to many side stories included to the main story. Not all are relevant, and some quite hard to digest and understand.

If you like strong and heavy stuff - that makes you think about the condition of the human kind, you will find some in this movie.

I can recommend this title if you would like to see (or just remind yourself) how the things were done in communist Poland.
