NEW POLISH FILMS 2014 INTRODUCTION
Ladies and Gentlemen,
You are holding in your hands
the latest edition of the New
Polish Films directory, published
by the Polish Film Institute,
announcing the upcoming season
in Polish cinema. We present here selected feature
films, animations and shorts. It is encouraging that
many of them are debuts and second films. We will
soon be able to see them in competitions
and prestigious sections of international film
festivals.
In 2013, the Polish audience clamoured to ambitious
and artistically valuable cinema. The reason for
the high levels of satisfaction is the fact that
the most watched film of last year was Traffic
Department by Wojciech Smarzowski. Also films
awarded at prestigious festivals enjoyed huge
popularity, including In the Name of... by Malgoska
Szumowska, Ida by Pawel Pawlikowski, Imagine by
Andrzej Jakimowski, Life Feels Good by Maciej
Pieprzyca or Baby Blues by Katarzyna Roslaniec.
Contemporary Polish cinema is very varied. Its
creators are looking for answers to niggling
questions, often addressing important social issues
in a historical context. However, these questions
concern timeless and universal issues – tolerance,
human rights, respect for the different.
I believe that with this New Polish Films publication,
you will discover in Polish cinema something
intriguing, surprising and inspiring. I invite you to see
those films that will help you become friends with
Polish cinema for a longer time.

Antitherapy Antyterapia
POLAND 2014
PHOTO BY KAMIL JURKOWSKI
COLOUR, 105 MINUTES
Tygrys is a forty-year-old film director, living life to the fullest, hardly refraining from
alcohol and cocaine. But whenever he sobers up, his buddies are gone and women are
reluctant to give him unconditional love. His alcoholic binges eventually land him
in a court of law, where the judge orders him to go into therapy. Tygrys hopes to have all his
problems go away, but unfortunately the therapist staff has only one goal: to scam
the poor patients for as much money as possible.

Construction workers find human remains and a diary from the days of the Warsaw
Uprising in the ruins of a pre-war house.
While hiding in the cellar, a university professor wrote about the first days of battle
in Warsaw. Young Warsaw residents would build barricades with enthusiasm, only to
have to face the much better armed Waffen SS Dirlewanger in an uneven battle.
The film uses never-before-seen archive footage filmed during the Warsaw Uprising.

An attempt at depicting the life of a generation born and raised in communist Poland;
a generation that lived through all stages of that system and made it to democracy.
Throughout his life, the film’s protagonist has always tried to be active, but something
always got in his way, either through an absurd coincidence, as a result of his own lack
of ability, or due to the unpredictable nature of certain events in our recent history.

Marta is a sculptor; she has a loving husband and her own flat and studio. But the years
spent under her mother’s roof and their extremely close relationship make it
impossible for her to live an independent life.
The incessant phone calls: “Marta, sweetheart, pick up – it’s Mum!” prevent her from
being able to feel truly free.
A drama about the power of family ties.

This is a little story about retirement, but that’s not all. It’s a comic tale about
a 65-year-old cuckold, but that’s not all, either. It is an evocative account of a passionate
love affair straight from the inferno. And that would be all.

Father tearing the supermarket with oxen, his plough tearing through the tiles;
a bikini-clad girl seducing the hero on the snowy slopes of the Matterhorn; Niagara Falls
plunging onto the altar of the cathedral: these are the visions that haunt Adam, a poet
who lost the love of his life and his best friend in a car accident.
A national drama unfolds, adding to the tense atmosphere of his personal tragedy.
The year is 2010: flooding, mass fires, mudslides, and the crash of the presidential
airplane that killed 96 people on board.
Adam quits his job as a literature teacher and takes on the position of a supermarket
cashier. He tries to escape the painful reality. His only reading material in these dark times
is Dante’s “Divine Comedy”. Passages from this book help him make sense of everyday life.

The story of an out-of-work actor suffering from a mental block. He is offered a part;
a tragicomic part in his own life. In exchange for a flat, he is to pick up a certain young
woman, then ‘pass her on’ to his employer. This indecent proposal drags the three
protagonists into a world of fear that they were previously able to hide from themselves
and from others – the fear of being ordinary.

POLAND 2014
It is high time to depart from the Hel peninsula – a place that, for the upcoming winter
months, will transform from a buzzing tourist resort into a deserted and godforsaken
place. Three tourists try to delay their departure by hanging out at a seaside bar
and playing with the local tourist attraction: a lie detector. When they finally decide to
leave Hel, they make a stop at a petrol station, where they cross paths with a murderer.

A dark comedy about a group of employees of a carpet store, looking for love and clumsily
struggling with loneliness. The detached storytelling highlights the loneliness
and separateness of each of the characters who, despite efforts to have control over their
destiny, prove to be utterly and ridiculously helpless. This willingness to act together
and its complete ineffectiveness is a source of many absurdities.

Aleksandra Gowin
A chance meeting between people who, for one reason or another, dislike traveling on
beaten tracks. They seek happiness on their own terms rather than those dictated by
others.
A film about love, or rather about how to protect yourself from love; because love is
all-consuming, selfish, against independence, and nothing good can come of it. Is it
possible to protect yourself from love using little crushes, or is a major catastrophe
inevitable?

f CONTENTS f INDEX
The story of ‘The Photographer’, an elusive serial killer operating in modern-day
Moscow. At each crime scene, the perpetrator leaves numbered tiles, similar to those
usually placed by forensic specialists.
The investigation points to the old Red Army barracks in Legnica and to events dating
back to the 1970s. One of the people involved in the investigation is Natasha – a young
police officer and the only person to have survived an encounter with
‘The Photographer’.

Set in 1960s communist Poland, the story was inspired by real events.
Karol is young, good looking, comes from a good family, has no major problems,
and we know that everything should be just fine.
Things change when he accidentally witnesses a murder (or so he thinks). Karol follows
the murderer, eventually being drawn into a disciple-mentor relationship and forming
a strong emotional bond with the killer.
A film about the mechanisms that come into play when “a serial killer is born”.

The sailor is a man caught between two worlds: memory and oblivion, fact and fiction.
Wanting to settle down, he arrives in Łódź – a city that has no sea access, contrary to
what its name (Polish for ‘boat’) might suggest. Will he be able to find his place
in the real world, not just in his imagined world?

Alek, Zośka and Rudy are boy scouts and high school graduates; they are a close group
of friends, with great plans for the future. These plans are interrupted when the war
begins in September 1939. The three young men face a choice: surviving at any cost, or
fighting and risking everything. Raised in patriotic families and formed by the ideals
of the scouting movement, they become soldiers and, while facing death on a daily basis,
they are able to lead a full life. Their fight is dedicated and honourable; they depart “like
stones thrown by God to the ramparts”, leaving a lesson of friendship, honour, and love for
the motherland.

Thomas is casting the female lead in a play he is directing. The exhausting auditions
bring no effects; none of the candidates are suitable for the role of a woman who
enters into a contract with a man; a contract that turns him into a slave. Resigned,
the director is about to exit the theatre when Vanda bursts through the door – insolent,
ill-mannered, desperate, and unprepared. Once Thomas reluctantly agrees to give her
a chance, the actress undergoes a spectacular metamorphosis.

An attempt to grasp the unique transformation of an average man, an electrician from
the Gdańsk shipyard fighting for workers’ rights, into a charismatic political leader who
helped release the suppressed dream of freedom lying dormant in the souls of millions
and fostered changes that far exceeded the wildest expectations of the day.
Following Man of Marble and Man of Iron, this film concludes Wajda’s triptych on man
and his struggle against injustice. Wałęsa. Man of Hope is the tale of a time when such
a struggle heralded changes across Europe and gave reason to look boldly to the future.

A story of young Varsovians full of life and passion, living as if each day was to be their
last. But this behaviour is not caused by bravado or youthful recklessness; such
an attitude is commonplace in the reality that surrounds them.
We first meet the characters shortly before the start of the Warsaw Uprising. They join
the underground movement not only to fulfil their patriotic duty, but also to embark on
a youthful adventure, have something to brag about, and impress girls. Little do they
know that the approaching summer will prove to be the test of their lives; History has
already made their plans for them.
Joined by friendship, they form one of the most courageous units to fight in the Uprising.
They witness sacrifice and heroism, but also cruelty, betrayal and murder. Against their
will, History teaches them a bloody and brutal lesson in maturity.

Brother Dog
Three friends and a lazy weekend by the lake. Or
at least that’s how it is until the ball falls
somewhere it shouldn’t, the beautiful girl turns
out to be siding with the enemy, and the janitor
starts his persecution.
Something needs to be done; luckily, the three
characters are great at thinking on their feet.
A tongue-in-cheek coming-of-age story
of friendship and destiny.

with the contract, but Jan’s temporary impotence
makes intercourse impossible. Jan tries to get his

received.

Aaron, a quiet and introvert Israeli dancer
and a star past his prime, comes to Poland for
a guest performance in a provincial theatre. He is
both admired and respected by the theatre crew.
Aaron feels uncomfortable being in the country
that has seen so much suffering of Jewish people,
but he tries not to let it show, and does his best to
befriend his colleagues. One day during rehearsal,
he can’t help feeling that he is being watched.
Behind the curtain, he notices a person who,
horror of horrors, looks just like Adolf Hitler.
Based on a true story.

As the fishermen say, if you look straight into
the eyes of a miruna at a moment like this, a part
of its soul becomes a part of you.
After an argument with her lover, a distraught
young woman gets into the car of a stranger. Their
journey sparks a mutual fascination, which leads
the man to take a look deep into his own soul,
bringing about a fatal fulfilment of his obsessive
desires. In a maze of vivid flashbacks of his
painful past, the fate of the young woman
becomes inevitably tied to that of the imaginary
fish.

A heart-warming paraphrase of the famous
maxim, according to which every man should – at
some point in his lifetime – build a house, plant
a tree, and father a son.
This story is set in a fairly recent, albeit
unspecified, time and place. It is the story of one
man who, as an adult, tries to follow the rules he
learned as a child from his tragically deceased
father.

Ars Moriendi is the Latin phrase for the medieval “art
of dying”, man's lifetime preparation for a dignified
death.
The film's protagonist plans out every single detail
of every single day. But is it even possible to plan
a perfect death?
A boring day on the beach; everything is sticky from
the hot, humid air. The sunbathers stuff their faces,
leaving piles of garbage all around. They can't be
bothered to move their lazy asses and throw
the candy wrappers in the trash bin.

What is memory loss? In a labyrinth of fear, one’s
relative becomes a stranger and one’s home becomes
a trap. Walking around blindly, tracing familiar
objects and shapes, the film’s protagonist tries to
find her way back to a life that used to be her own.
A moving portrayal of disorientation, alienation,
and the attempt to piece together mismatching

Three wise men (or kings): one naive – Gaspar; one shy

Although the film is based on a biblical parable, it is
