Storyline

The forty-something Leon who used to be with special forces is now an alcoholic after his wife left him. He gets a call to meet a mobster who's looking for a bodyguard. When he arrives the mobster refuses to hire him because he can tell he's an alcoholic, but when he saves his life a few minutes later, the gangster is very appreciative and gives Leon the job. He's not hired to protect the gangster, but the gangster's 16-year-old daughter, Sara. At first she is annoyed by him and is rebellious and won't cooperate with him, but when he saves her life and takes a bullet for her, she falls in love with him. She makes advances towards him telling him she wants him to be her man. Naturally he refuses her at first because he knows her father would kill him. Eventually he gives in and they become secret lovers. They're in love but how long can they continue their relationship before her father finds out? And what will he do when he finds out?

Totally cool gangster flick...
15 February 2003 | by sonofmoshSee all my reviews

This Polish gangster movie is as slick as any American effort. Lots of violence, and one of the sexiest couplings ever. Boguslaw Linda is very cool as Leon, the alcoholic Commando who gets a job as a body guard to Agnieszka Wlodarczyk's gorgeous Sara, the daughter of Jozef the mob boss. Leon's and Sara's relationship is handled cleverly, from meeting through to the apocalyptic ending. Not a movie for everyone, especially the love interest between Leon and Sara (he's 40, she's 16), and some of the scenes are a bit flaky (a tango in a Chinese restraunt???), but it's 110 minutes of action, and that's good enough.

Can't wait to see this again.
