The Pact

Marek Lechki
Poland, 2015, 100 Min

Piotr Grodecki is an investigative journalist for the “Kurier” newspaper. Despite the resistance of his superiors he insists on undertaking investigations on his own initiative, as a result of which catches wind of a financial scandal. His persistence on the matter brings him into conflict with influential political and economic circles however, with fateful consequences for both him and his family.


The Polish adaptation of Norwegian TV crime series MAMMON was broadcast under the title PAKT. Together with the Czech adaption of the same series, MAMON, the FilmFestival Cottbus this year showcases the first two episodes of both productions. One storyline, two series: the locations, as well as character disposition and ultimately the way in which the works were addressed to their respective audiences, these aspects differ strongly. How do the works compare and contrast in terms of character portrayal? What about depictions of violence, aesthetic values, or the division of roles amongst men and women? BB
