As for ‘The Taming of the Shrewd 2,’ it is directed by Filip Zylber and serves as the sequel to the first part.

For shooting purposes, the filming unit of ‘The Taming of the Shrewd’ also traveled to the capital of Poland — Warsaw. The city scenes involving the main character before she moves to her hometown were possibly lensed in and around Warsaw, with the modern cityscape filling the background of several scenes.
