Cut-and-paste Hollywood mafia movie
30 October 2010 | by p-stepienSee all my reviews

Blacha (Robert Wieckiewicz), an ex-middleman in the criminal underground, is the key witness in an enormous Pruszkow mafia bust. As such he is kept under lock and key hidden away from the world. Intent on getting an interview with the ex-gangster is Marcin Kruk (Pawel Malaszynski), whose pregnant wife was collateral damage in a mafia car-bomb several years back with Blacha being his main suspect. Fortunately Blacha holds Marcin's journalistic work in very high regard, hence agrees to an exclusive interview in a secluded hotel in the Hel peninsula. There he retreads his criminal life...

A tale of two movies. Literally. It came to no shock when I found out that the 'present' was written by one person (Artur Kowalewski), while the retrospectives were done by another pair (Piotr Pytlakowski, Wojciech Kruk). Kowalewski's script is absolutely terrible - uninteresting, laughable, bland and at times ridiculous. This backed with the absolutely atrocious acting by Polish pretty-boy Malaszynski make it one of the worst cinematographic experiences I have seen lately. Even Robert Wieckiewicz was unables to act given his partnership, but what was worse - the dychotomy of the script unfortunately caused a severe schizophrenia and dual-personality disorder the character: 'Blacha' from the interview is completely out-of-sync with 'Blacha' from the retrospectives.

Now the second duo did a much better job, where they managed to flesh out the characters, the mafia, the way it functions and give the movie some real intense scenes. Now in the end even this part does run a bit flat and is nothing outside of the box of typical Hollywood movies, but at least it keeps you interested in the movie. Unfortunately the story is a bit too simple and straightforward, so it never hits home. Slowly and unfortunately it just fizzles out and give over the grand finale to the absolutely horrendous Kowalewski script.
