Krotki Film o Zabijaniu Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This disturbing and violent feature opens with a scene of a dead rat and a lifeless cat hanging by the neck. As the plot unfolds, Yatzek ([[Performer~P131132~Miroslaw Baka~miroslawbaka]]) is a 20-year-old drifter who murders a testy taxi driver ([[Performer~P70366~Jan Tesarz~jantesarz]]) in a gut-wrenching scene of excessive violence. Tension continues to build as a newly licensed young attorney ([[Performer~P138938~Krzysztof Globisz~krzysztofglobisz]] is chosen to represent Yatzek in court. Much anticipated and well-received at Cannes, the film won the European Film Academy Award for "Best European Film" in 1988. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
