best polish movie of 2006
18 February 2007 | by edd30See all my reviews

I've seen this movie, and I really have to say that I am impressed. The plot at the beginning is quite slow, but after 15 minutes it appears to be fast. The tragedy of young women badly treated by her mother in law and her young husband shows us how cruel people can be. Chasien for money, pursuit for happiness, and love the man who cheat. It is not a movie for people who expect a comedy or to relax, it force us to think how can it be when you fully rely on somebody who you love and when you are to good for people that surround you they just abuse you and treat you badly. I fully recommend this movie as a film that sometimes reflects our cruel life.
