Patryk Vega’s latest film ‘Plague of Breslau’, which is set here in Wrocław, will only be screened in cinemas abroad.
Vega’s controversial films are famous for packing in huge doses of sex, violence and swearing. This latest installment appears to offer plenty of the latter two elements at least.
The film is based on the story of a serial killer in 18th century Wrocław (then Breslau), but is set in the present day.
The action-packed trailer features scenes including a riderless horse striding through Nadodrze, terrified crowds flocking a murder scene at the Opera and armed police surrounding an mpk bus.
The 3-minute clip also includes scenes recorded on the Rynek, the Olympic Stadium, Partynice Racecourse, Dunikowskiego Boulevard and the path along the Odra nearby Zwierzyniecki bridge.
However the movie won’t be initially be screened in Polish cinemas. This is due to a commercial agreement Vega has signed with the Showmax VOD service.
According to Gazeta Wrocławska, Vega’s new film will nonetheless be screened in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ireland, Iceland, Canada, Luxembourg, Germany, Norway, Sweden, the UK and the USA.
