Description Technical Specs
Leading an already strong cast in this coming-of-age story, Jerzy Stuhr (The Decalogue) plays a handsome young musician, Gypsy, who busts out of jail one week before his release. He blows into town, falls madly in love with the 16-year-old daughter of a Communist hardliner, and hits the road with her when her father doesn't approve. Based on an actual event from the early 1990s in which the daughter of a Polish politician ran away with her boyfriend. Capturing the end of the Solidarity era, "a true-life farce was transformed into a grotesque vision of contemporary Poland" (The Guardian) in Hijacking Agatha. In Polish with English subtitles.
