To be honest, I hesitated to go to the cinema because I was afraid that it's just another overrated (by media only) Polish film. However, I am very glad to announce that this film is REALLY worth being seen! Apart from an amazing performance of Jakub Gierszał and Agata Kulesza, you can admire excellent special effects together with well-written dialogs. Even though the idea of animation which is presented in the film may put somebody off, it should be pointed out that it actually fits perfectly well into the picture. 'Sala samobójców' shows the rules which are brought to life in modern world and leaves it to the audience to decide whether we should apply them in our own lives. I would recommend this film to everybody who is mature enough to appreciate its beauty and depth. For me, it was a real treat. Enjoy!
