Big Brawl (or Big Bust, depending on who translates) - Wielka wsypa;  Dir. Jan Lomnicki, 1992

An action-packed story concerning the rise and fall of a notorious Polish criminal during the first years after communism. As the new Polish government and economy struggle to stay afoot, mobsters and crooks take advantage of the financial chaos left in the wake of the collapse of one system and the establishment of another. Starring veteran stage and screen actor Jan Englert (Kanal; Kiler; The Apple Tree of Paradise), BIG BRAWL captures the reckless atmosphere of this historical moment.
