Deeper than it seems
4 August 2008 | by mzachaSee all my reviews

A didn't go to the cinema on the day of premiere. I expected that "Show" is another dumb comedy with Cezary Pazura, this time about "Big Brother" phenomenon. I was wrong... this a comedy, but not only a comedy. It is also a well-written crime story and a tale about the fame! All in one.

The acting is just good, but Cezary Pazura is really funny. The script is the isn't as predictable as in American movies. It reminds me "Ten little Afro-Americans" (sorry, I cannot post the right title here, political correctness is a terrible thing!) by Agatha Christie. It also says a little bit about people, they hopes, needs and behavior. Of course "Show" isn't a great movie, but it is still one of the best Polish movies of 2003.
