Must be me…I found this a very hum drum movie with a twist or two
12 October 2012 | by lepoisson-1See all my reviews

I like foreign movies, and I realize that since I rely on subtitles, I often miss the humor a native speaker might appreciate. I know nothing of Machulskiego; I found the DVD at the library and it looked interesting, so I figured I should give it a try.

Much of the movie is the planning of the crime and the character conflicts; it's not a 100% action movie. I like this: it makes the actual crime and getaway that much more exciting, and it reminded me of the original Italian Job (a favorite). The problem was that I didn't really like or dislike any of the characters. Will they pull it off? Will the bad guys (whichever ones you decide they are) get it in the end? Will a romance happen? I just didn't care.

The acting was good. The cinematography was good. I didn't shut if off.

5 stars.
