The Polish "Crash"
1 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Zero is an amazing film, equivalent, if not better than the movie "Crash". Clearly, there is no racial stratification in this film as it is geographically centered in a mono-racial Poland. I rate it a 10 out of 10 for its strong characters, concise and poignant dialogue, minimal and effective directing, dramatic acting, epic sensationalism, and it's natural integration.

I am a very picky film viewer. I am not interested in many films; rather, I am content with clever thrillers and action flicks, as well as comedy (Fratire and Urban). The plot for this film.. "A story about love and hatred, about those who cheat and who are cheated, about violence and sex and surprising secrets which we learn within these strange twenty four hours," very simply caught my attention.

As I stated earlier, although this film does not contain interracial interactions as did the gripping "Crash", we experience the intersection of all other social dynamics as they mesh together so beautifully. The characters are too cleverly intertwined to the point the viewer consciously trusts the screenplay in its totality. Whilst Americans are exposed to the heartwarming stories of triumph and tear-jerking realities such as "Precious", this film reaches deep into one's emotional reserves and provokes as much sympathy as contempt.

This film is a must see for any fan of simultaneous life experiences and the social effects of conscience, morality, and sexuality. A must see...
