Inspired by true events from the 1970s, the story revolves around a young detective who becomes the head of a police unit focused on catching a rampant serial killer of women, nicknamed 'The Silesian Vampire'.
This is a very dark, well filmed and well acted complicated(ish) European crime drama. I watched and enjoyed the film in subtitles, well translated and the story flowed.
I particularly liked the main protagonist 'Police officer Iza', she played her part remarkably well. She was pregnant in the film and played a range of emotions in response to some very difficult situations, not a hint of sentimentality she was real and a pleasure to watch.
The rest of the cast was pretty top notch and some excellent acting all round. Gritty and quite realistic portrayals of violence which without being graphic added weight to the whole undertaking.
This is a good film in it's own right and worth a watch.
