Catch A Glimpse Of One Man's Heroic True Story In The First Trailer For JACK STRONG
Wladyslaw Pasikowski (Psy, Psy 2, screenwriter for Katyn) is undoubtedly one of the most interesting Polish directors working today. This year he shocked the world with a downright controversial Poklosie, which was meant to unveil the atrocious part of Poland's turbulent past. His latest venture into the country's history will be a thriller based on a true story of Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski (played by Marcin Dorocinski), who tried to do the impossible and stop the Soviets all by himself during the Cold War. This riveting tale of heroism is hailed by many as one of the most fascinating spy stories of the modern world. Here's the synopsis:
A spy thriller telling a historically based story of a man who alone dares to challenge Soviets being in the middle of the communistic system himself. Planning the maneuvers of Warsaw Pact forces he discovers that the American plans of nuclear counterattack against Soviet forces is planned to be executed on Polish territory. Thanks to his determination he starts a long, lonely and psychologically exhausting cooperation with CIA. From that moment the life of his and his family is in danger as one careless move can lead to tragedy.
The trailer promises a lot of suspense and intrigue told by a very international cast in not one, but three languages. Stunning production values of the film immediately remind of many American-style thrillers. If everything goes right this might be the most spectacular Polish blockbuster in recent memory.
Jack Strong will have its Polish premiere on February 7, 2014. Watch the trailer below.
