| Ultimately Disappointing
The film is really well made and the first half is very intriguing but then it starts to unravel and becomes rather tedious.

Contrary to the urban legend the female lead, Iwona Petry was not plucked out of obscurity to be in this movie. She was actually in another Polish film three years earlier.

And she didnt leave movies because she was traumatized by the nude scenes, which are relatively tame. She got married about the time this movie was made, returned to school and has been writing books of poetry ever since.

She sure did have a smoking hot body in this film, but she's not a good actress and she hasnt aged well.

The movie is worth a look, but be warned: you will likely get bored around midway.
