Once again Linda rules
6 January 2001 | by jerzymSee all my reviews

Absolutely must-see for all western fans. Directors uses western cliches mixed with Eastern European scents /some references to Dracula/ to make thrilling movie about the "perfect evil". Beatifully filmed with breathtaking performances of Boguslaw Linda and Olaf Lubaszenko. One bad thing - I've seen this film in Polish TV with the Czech actors dubbed in Polish. I'm afraid I've lost a lot of climate. But once again - come and see and you won't be disappointed
