Very enjoyable film
5 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have just seen this film on special release in a cinema here in Melbourne Australia, subtitled into English. I think I might have been the only non-Polish person in the audience! I found the film to be a very enjoyable light crime caper movie but, more interestingly, a rare opportunity to see contemporary Poland reflected in the movies - plot wise, I couldn't help but be reminded of the remake of The Italian Job.

I thought it was beautifully photographed on location in southern Poland - as a native English speaker, may I say that it is not common to see movies like this played out in foreign languages with English subtitles (outside of the SE Asian action genres). I found the whole movie very enjoyable, although no doubt I missed some of the in jokes that did not translate into the subtitles.
