Description
 
Andrzej Jakimowski balances gravity and irony, comedy and reality, in his depiction of a friendship between an older man and a teenage girl. When Mala runs away from her well-to-do parents to live on the deserted farm of her former teacher Jaciek, her parents are unable to persuade her to return home. But Jaciek, a unique if unkempt soul and societal dropout, uses his wits and wisdom to slowly persuade Mala to change her mind. "This brief, scoffing tory, told in the manner of Milos Forman's early films, keeps haunting you long after you've left the theatre" (Chicago Reader). In Polish with English subtitles.
