The movie starts with a nice overview of the current events of 1986, setting the stage for the later part of the film. The scenography is very well prepared, much like in earlier Kosak's movie, The Outsider. He pays attention to detail and younger generations could benefit from the veracity (props) with which he portrays the 1980s, especially since the socialist regime is a thing of the past nowadays.
The movie's punchline can be seen twice - throughout the movie as the main character finds himself in strange (capitalist system) situations where it is obvious that earlier values of honesty, work, friendship, .. don't mean a thing, and at the end of the movie, when the main character holds a speech in which he denounces "this alienated capitalist system" which he does not want to be a part of. The message of the movie is very much interesting for today's situation. I sincerely hope Kosak makes some more movies which take place in the old socialist system since that provides entertainment as well as a deeper insight, thanks to Kosak's attention to detail.
