Truecrime/biopic over infamous czech gangster Jiri Kajinek and the triple homocide he may or not have committed.
2 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Entertaining albeit somewhat flawed crimethriller/biopic loosely based on real life czech gangster Jiri Kajinek.

This film starts with a female lawyer(Tatiana Vilhelmová) who starts investigating Kajineks case and quickly realises that not everything is in order.

Kajinek (Konstantin Lavronenko)however doesn't really believe in her sincerity and plans his escape from prison.

The films biggest flaw is the romanticized depiction of Kajinek and the crimes that he may or not have committed. Also (I suspect) takes a lot of factual liberties of this real life gangsters deeds.

However this is expected when watching a movie chronicling a gangsters life.

But if you have nothing else to see a Sunday night this film will be the right type of entertainment that you might want to see.

According to some sources on the internet (czech version of wikipedia, newspaper articles etc) Kajinek as seen as Robin Hood figure in Czech republic among the public, however it seems very unlikely that he committed these crimes to serve anybody but himself.
