Storyline

Film opens on December 18, 1999, just a few days before the dawn of the new century. A local reporter, Iron Idem, announces that the Martians have landed. Shortly after that his program loses its independence: he is given the script telling the crowds how to welcome the invaders. Then the chaos breaks out: the Martians and police mistreat the populace; things become violent. Idem's own wife is kidnapped and it seems somebody is trying to reduce his effectiveness as a reporter. Idem decides to fight back: he illegally broadcasts a message during the rock concert, but nobody believes him anymore. Written by Polish Cinema Database <http://info.fuw.edu.pl/Filmy/>

polish godard + orwell
10 January 2004 | by (warsaw) – See all my reviews

very different from other polish movies( from the 80's), something between Godard's Alphaville and "1984" by Orwell. Build on old movies outlines, straight from noir and classic anti-utopia. good polish movie. At last something less political and better( for me of course) than wajda, zanussi, konwicki and other finicky boring pompous director....
