Storyline

A young German girl jumps off a Wroclaw church tower. She is a member of a Women's Gregorian Choir led by a cantor Jan (Adam Woronowicz). The church community is appalled by a taboo breaking women's schola. Among those who strongly disapprove this choir is ...the cantor himself. The mysterious death is investigated by an experienced and uncompromising Superintendent Warski (Bartlomiej Topa), for whom saving human live means more than following the procedures. When he breaks the rules in another action, he is referred to a psychologists ( Malgorzata Foremniak). Hardly any man can resist the sex appeal of this outwardly cold but a beautiful woman... Superintendent Warski is not really happy when he finds out that Ana Wittesch ( Julia Kijowska), a German police officer of a Polish origin, is assigned to the case. He has no idea that Ana came to Wroclaw to conduct other secret investigation. Given an exceptional intelligence and a police instinct, Superintendent Warski quite soon ... Written by Prasa i Film

Average Neo Noir Thriller
24 September 2016 | by Alex_HodgkinsonSee all my reviews

This film has all the ingredients of a neo noir thriller, with an intriguing plot line and likable, though conventional, characters guiding us along. The tone, characters and dialogue are all things we've seen before, with only the plot being something rather inventive.

As a fan of neo noir crime thrillers, this was right up my street and I enjoyed it, hence the 6/10. The film could be a lot better, but you know what you're getting with this and if you're a fan of the genre you'll probably enjoy it. Some of the dialogue is humorous, too, causing a number of people in my showing of the film to laugh.

The film has a distinct European feeling and tone, as well, if you like that, and some nice Gothic imagery at times. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it is an enjoyable crime thriller for any interested.
