| Interesting journey to the world of What-If
"1983" is a look to the alternate timeline of the world's most recent history - it answers a question - What if the Iron Curtain was still in place? To get to this point Joshua Long created a world in which a terrorist attack in Poland, in 1983 had united a Polish Nation, taking away the "Solidarity" movement - the first domino of the Fall of Communism.

There is much to say about this production - from the captivating world to it's chaotic and often redundant storylines. The acting leaves a somewhat lot to be desired - besides few roles (a small role of Sandra Korzeniak as a custodian of the Villa or Zofia Wichlacz as a daughter of a government minister) the acting is a bit stiff and dialogues seem unnatural (but it may be just a problem of the Polish version).

However, all the problems mentioned above didn't spoil the entertainment of experiencing the alternative history of '1983'. Overall it's a solid political fiction with, a nice noir vibe to it. Worth a watch.
