A hit of 1983, now a cult film. A simple, suspenseful story about a talented card cheat, which in spite of the passing years has not become outdated. Just like energetic soundtrack by Andrzej Korzyński!

The strengths of “Wielki Szu” (“Big Shar”) are: its screenplay by Jan Purzycki (the story of an old card sharp who teaches his tricks to an inexperienced, young novice), the directing of Sylwester Chęciński and the excellent cast of actors (Jan Nowicki, Andrzej Pieczyński). The whole was ideally complemented by the fresh, modern-sounding music of Andrzej Korzyński. It is rhythmic, verging into funk and disco craziness – an updated sound essence of what Arp Life was doing a few years earlier. Korzyński of course wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t fill in the whole with melodious, heart-moving lyrical phrases of string instruments and a solid dose of suspense (with the trumpet of Henryk Majewski in the main role).

The complete soundtrack of “Wielki Szu” is appearing for the first time on CD, remastered from the original tapes from the artist’s private archives. The album’s program is supplemented by recordings prepared for the film “Dzień kolibra”, which was being shot at the same time. The booklet contains a sketch on the subject of the film and music as well as original photos. The cover is based on the original poster by Maciej Stawiński.
