Another Polish film about making films, June 8, 2005
Superprodukcja is another Polish film about making films. However, this time a film critic is pressured by a mobster into making a film that will star the mobster's girlfriend. Overall, the story idea is original and this is a film worth watching.
There are references in this film to other Polish films, and probably knowing a little about Polish films makes this movie even more funny. For example, viewers familiar with Krzystof Kieslowski's Decalogue will recognize the "watching man" who appears in several of the Decalogue episodes, always silent and often carrying something. In Superprodukcja, the "watching man" appears a few times sporadically, with Decalogue-like dramatic music playing as he makes his short cameos, just as he did in the Decalogue.
Superprodukcja also has a bit of action and drama, so it is more than just a "joke after joke" comedy. Toward the end of the film there is one of the most hilarious scenes in the film, probably worth seeing the film just for that alone. If you liked the Polish comedy "Hacker," you should also like Superprodukcja.
