ANATOMY OF EVIL (ANATOMIA ZŁA)
Director: Jacek Bromski
Taking loose inspiration from a number of real-life events, including the unsolved murders of Chief of Police Marek Papała and journalist Jarosław Ziętara, Anatomy Of Evil is a gripping thriller in which former hitman ‘Lulek’ (Krzysztof Stroiński), 65 and recently released on parole, is offered one last job by the very prosecutor responsible for his imprisonment. Realising the limitations imposed by age, he presents himself to Staszek (Marcin Kowalczyk), a sniper dishonourably discharged from the army, as a senior officer who may be able to get him back in uniform. Duplicity and suspicion abound as events come to unexpected conclusions.
122 minutes. Poland, 2015. Subtitled. Digital.
