Well Done Polish Docu-Drama
11 August 2017 | by gsandra614See all my reviews

This was a tightly produced production about a real-life search for a serial killer in Poland. But the real story is about ambition versus honor -- the good things in life at the price of your soul.

The lead actor did a good job of working his way through ambitious young detective to vaunted hero but there was something terribly wrong. Doubt. Our hero is an alcoholic and adulterer which only adds to his troubles with his big case. (As an aside, I wondered if this actor would make it through filming or die of lung cancer before the film wrapped. I've never seen anyone smoke so many cigarettes!) This is one of those many foreign films that has something special to offer the discerning viewer. If you're tired of all the comic-book theatrics and remakes of old films from America, there are a lot of good films being made in other countries.
