Unacceptably low acting and shocking dialogs, amateurish
4 June 2010 | by taner86See all my reviews

The subject dealt with in the movie is no doubt, a difficult one.. It should not be touched by directors of the lower sort or students as it may be the case here. I have a problem to establish which of the 2 Polish movies is worse? "Zielone lata" or "Swinki". The previous is far older movie so it is forgiven. The latter one is unforgivably low quality... the acting is beyond any comments,alas except perhaps for Tomek but also only "just". The dialogs are clumsy, unnatural, most of the time unnecessary and dummy. Of course there is a room in them for vulgarity as usually is the case in most Polish movies searching for a cheap stunt. Poles love talking and because talk is cheap...they do a lot of it in movies. Unintelligently executed work. Not much is happening for the duration of 3/4 of the movie... then the finale is somewhat acceptable.. Not the conversations of course... they will be no good to the very end. I've made subs for this movie and that was a real torture for me. This type of social issues, as i mentioned already - should never be allowed to be handled by an amateur crew. Waste of time to watch...If you are into these type of society problems - go for the British "The war zone" Not that is spectacular but at least the acting is not that bad...Boy, o boy... those Poles :-)
