Storyline

The deeply frozen Cold War is heating up. Twenty years after a devastating terrorist attack in 1983 that halted the course of Poland's liberation and the subsequent downfall of the Soviet Union, an idealistic law student and a disgraced police investigator stumble upon a conspiracy that has kept the Iron Curtain standing and Poland living under a repressive police state. Now, in 2003, after two decades of peace and prosperity, the leaders of the regime enact a secret plan made with an unlikely adversary in the 1980s that will radically transform Poland and affect the lives of every citizen in the nation - and the world. What these two men discover has the potential to ignite a revolution and those in power will stop at nothing to keep it a secret. Written by ahmetkozan

If you stick with it, it will be worth it
25 December 2018 | by icymi-37906See all my reviews

I haven't seen much Polish cinema... I've watched Polanski's American films and then some he made as an expatriate in France. And I admired Kieslowski's films though again I saw mostly his French films and parts of the Decalogue.

So, it was a treat to watch this mini journey through Warsaw and a little of the Polish countryside reimagined as a parallel universe.

The shots of the architecture, landscapes, and cityscapes are beautiful. I agree that if you watch it on a low resolution tablet or laptop that it might look too dark, but if you watch it on a big screen you will find the cinematography to be stunning. It reminded me a little of Kieslowski, the way the dp would make even driving through a tunnel or walking through a train station an aesthetically pleasing experience.

This isn't an easy series to watch, and I would mostly recommend it to art house fans more than mainstream tv watchers who just want to relax and enjoy a 24 style thriller. It flashes back and forth through time... none of the actors are known to an American audience so it's very difficult to keep track.

However, if you stick with the show, I think it pays off for the most part and has some interesting thoughts on bleak, brutal, and subjective nature of history. In a way, it reminded me of Memento... if you consider the protagonist a country rather than a person.
