This crime drama in a style of „The Silence of the Lambs” is based on the true story of the notorious Polish serial killer, Wladyslaw Mazurkiewicz, who terrorized Cracow in the 1950’s. This handsome, elegant playboy murderer – called „Pretty Wladzio” – went unpunished for a very long time until he met his match in the young police detective Karski, who brought him to justice.
Director Krzysztof Lang: “For us the story of Wladyslaw Mazurkiewicz, who was suspected of 30 murders and is probably the most famous killer in the annals of post-war crime in Poland, is a way to look back at those times and to look at the man who while tracking down the murderer was changed by this investigation”.
