The first part of the old impressive detective trilogy.
22 January 2003 | by nydrleonSee all my reviews

Detective Kalas (Hrusinsky) with his colleague are investigating death of young student. The more they are informed, the more they´re sure, that it couldn´t be just the car accident. And more deaths are on the way.

Brilliant dialogues, well acted (no doubt - Hrusinsky as well as Brzobohaty is one of the greatest czech actors of previous century), goes to detail (everything fits in), dark feel (thanks to instrumental music and black-and-white color).

Could give the creeps mixed with special feeling of memories to someone who have experienced the period.
