A Polish attempt to remain local with the touch of Nordic noir
It seems that my previous familiarisation with a Polish series was in previous century; that is why - when referred to Wataha - I was curious how the cinematography of a big European country had evolved and varied.
In general, I should say I am contented: performances are decent and realistic (although I found no performer to be fixed in my memory for the future), the plot has several twists, and one can get a good overview of life and people in a distant Polish border area. Besides, as for mood, background, camera-work and some characters, there are obvious references to similar Nordic crime series; well, it is not bad as such - as Nordic series deserve even more attention - but the result is a bit homespun, and the ending was not a good match to the prior thrilling events. The pace was a bit slow as well, but the breaks were often a prolongation of the obvious, rather than meaty accentuation of atmosphere or thrill. But, still, Wataha is a versatile creation for those fond of the mix of crime and conspiracy.
