"Sara" is Maciej Slesicki's 1997 hit action/romance. The film has the right mix of action, humor, and an interesting plot for your viewing pleasure.
Leon (Boguslaw Linda), a 40-year old former Polish special forces soldier, is hired as a bodyguard to protect a mob boss's pretty 16-year old daughter, Sara (Agnieszka Wlodarczyk). A passionate love develops between Sara and Leon after he saves her life.
The acting in the movie is great. Linda plays the role of a "tough guy" in many Polish films, but "Sara" is my favorite. Marek Perepeczko, renowned for playing the leading role in the 1970s television series "Janosik," plays the mob boss in "Sara". Both Linda and Perepeczko play off each other exceptionally well. "Sara" is Wlodarczyk's first feature film; she was about 16 at the time "Sara" was filmed and displays natural talent. Cezary Pazura, although playing a lesser role as a goon of the mob boss, adds to the film.
"Sara" is a fun movie with great action and enough suspense to hold one's attention. I highly recommend "Sara" to just about all audiences, even those that are not too familiar with Polish cinema.
