There are more than a few plot twists that keep us on our toes

Deadly Recording (Zabojcze Nagranie) is a movie about making a movie, which is nearly a genre in Polish cinema (with films such as Superprodukcja, Polisz kicz project, Fenomen and Wajda's classics Wszystko na sprzedaz and Czlowiek z marmuru using this theme). Although these films all have one thing in common (being about filmmaking), they all take different twists. Zabojcze Nagranie is an action movie about an independent filmmaker named Kefir, who is played by Bodo Kox -- who really is an independent filmmaker in addition to an actor.

Our filmmaker begins to have trouble when he accidentally records the murder of a woman and then becomes accused of being her killer. Kefir gets chased by the authorities and tries to clear his good name the best he can. Although the movie is brief, there are details that foreshadow the coming events so one has to watch very closely to take it all in (or pick them up on a second viewing). A lot of stuff happens in the 25 minutes of this short film so don't blink too often.

Although Deadly Recording feels a bit like a TV movie or B movie, it is a lot of fun. There are more than a few plot twists that keep us on our toes and guessing which direction things are heading next. In addition to the action, there are also a few parts I found very funny and are a nice touch. Besides writing and directing Deadly Recording, Ben Talar and Jakub Poltorak also have short cameo appearances in their movie too. If you are into world cinema or independent films, Zabojcze Nagranie will interest you. There isn't a dull moment in this story in a story so get ready for some intense viewing.
