The criminal who stole a cirime

The criminal who stole a cirime

Forced to retire early because of his health problems, captain Siwy goes back to
an old case which still bugs him. Who was the true killer of the beautiful Ewa
Salm, known across the Warsaw nightclubs as the Princess? Was something
overlooked during the investigation?
The cream of Polish actors in a film deemed to be the best of its genre. Janusz
Majewski’s “The Criminal Who Stole a Crime” is a clash between a crime mystery
and an intriguing film form, it blends paradocumentary elements, shots
from a reporter’s camera and interestingly framed scenes of questionings. The
film’s greatest advantage is, undoubtedly, the realistic picture of Warsaw’s criminal
nightlife, with its dens, collapsing tenement houses of the Praga quarter
and scoundrels hanging around notorious restaurants.
A screen adaptation of Krzysztof Kąkolewski’s novel awarded in a contest organised
by the Headquarters of the Citizens’ Militia.
