erratum

you're a weird man...


michal (tomasz kot) is forced to return to his home town when his boss requests that he collects his new car. after bumping into a friend he'd lost touch with, zbyszek (tomasz radawiec), and having an equally awkward meeting with his father (ryszard kotys) who he never sees, michal leaves town but, getting distracted by his telephone, he hits and kills a drunken vagrant who walks out into the road.

and so, waiting for his bosses car to get repaired, michal finds himself stuck in a town he desperately wants to leave. still, after some aimless wandering, his own sense of distance between him and his father, draws him to search for relatives and friends of the old man he ran over, whilst he attempts to re-connect with his father and zbyszek...

this is a film which i was initially quite indifferent to, but found myself liking more and more as it progressed. there's a nice mixture of comedy and drama, nothing too light or too heavy, just a pretty solid little film, that's nicely put together and plays out well. oh, and there's a repeated shot of water at the bottom of a weir, which is absolutely glorious. could've watched that for quite a while...

good stuff...

maybe a limited release and a dvd, but who knows...
