When there is too much, this is too bad...
18 July 2006 | by denis888See all my reviews

This is one of the worst Polish films that I have ever seen in my life. Not because I simply didn't understand it, or was in a bad mood. This is a fine example of a film where there is really too much. Too much blood, too much badly screened sex scenes, too many deaths, too much of a poor actors' play. Even great Boguslaw Linda and Cesare Pazura do not help. Their performance is vapid and often is reduced to some grotesque expressions or terrible words. What makes it even worse is the unbelievable mixture of the genres. The film may seem like a melodrama first the it turns to be a thriller, then simply and black bloody massacre, and then, when a dead woman wakes up in a bathroom near the final scene, it simply comes down to a stupid horror. Do not waste your time on this soulless film, you will only yawn and rub your eyes.
