Today. Argentina. Buenos Aires. An elderly woman looks through a fence - in anguish that she is no longer in her youth. This has faded away and anger has taken over this crippled body.
A year ago. Poland. Silesia. A young entrepreneur, Adam, purchases an old mine at 5% of its full price. Accompanied by his friend he descends into the mine only for something terrible to happen to his companion.
Today. Poland. Silesia. A group of friends travel to this remote area for fun. Unknown to some of them Joanna is actually in search of her brother, Adam, who went missing a year ago. In the meantime Karolina, a juvenile delinquent is transported to a local loony-bin, where she is to work in return for shortening her sentence...
Sounds promising? Well... so did I. The tech credits are fine save for the overusing of screeches and noises in the most idiotic moments. Up until this point I was really questioning the bad rep this movie has - nicely filmed, the acting was decent and script seemed to be going places. But boy its rep is well deserved... The story descends into chaos incarnate pulling punches left and right ending up with an incomprehensible mess of a ending.
Some of the scenes were just so bad, that a hefty laugh is guaranteed. If you watch the movie in that direction I can safely say you'll love the idiosyncrasies of this little flick and might very well cough your heart out with laughter. The worst thing in this terror of a horror is the script itself. The movie is very open-ended, but not in a good scary way. Basically many questions are left unanswered, but all the answers given seem to contradict them. Additionally film characters reach all new level highs of stupidity in horror movies. Question: What should you do if you suddenly get yanked up a mine chute and your friends at the last moment manage to save you? Answer: According to this movie you organise a campfire outside the mine entrance and start smoking weed... I kid you not.
This must be how a movie looks if everyone behind the movie is constantly high on ecstasy...
The only positive thing I could find in regards to this movie is Michał (played by Jakub Wesołowski), who is a mildly whacked-out crazy with the best lines and arguably the only thing resembling a character.
