Synopsis

Vabank II Czyli Riposta
This is a sequel to the domestically popular Va Banque about the antagonism between Kramer (Leonard Peetraszak) a double-crossing, unscrupulous ex-thief, now in jail, and his former partner Kwinto (Jan Machulski, popular actor and father of director Juliusz Machulski). The setting is the 1930s. Kramer has been in prison thanks to Kwinto, and now with the help of an accomplice he escapes and seeks revenge against his nemesis. Kwinto gears up to defend himself by summoning his talented, crafty friends for help, and Kramer backs up the hitman he hires to kill Kwinto with a plan to send him to prison, just in case. Circumstances move rapidly along, and soon the escaped jailbird Kramer is about to take off for Switzerland with some stolen loot, bribing the Nazi border guards to look the other way as he leaves. At that point, everything goes unexpectedly haywire in a big way. This film should not be confused with the 1986 Va Banque by director Diethard Kosher. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Vabank
Kwinto (Jan Machulski) is one irritated ex-con. He just got out of serving a six-year sentence for a crime he never commited and is going to get even - more than even - with the accomplice who set him up. It is Warsaw in the 1930s, and Kwinto is a gangster with ideals of loyalty that are sorely tried. A good friend in a jazz band has just been killed by the same man who sent Kwinto to prison, a man who is now a bank president. Nothing could be better, since Kwinto is a bank robber by profession. The ex-con teams up with a few of his cohorts to do one final bank heist - not knowing that his evil adversary has hired a hit man to do him in. The suspense and the mistakes build as the film twists and turns to the closing credits. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
