Storyline

Using the backdrop of the banality and ordinariness of everyday life in a small provincial town, the film analyses the relationship between two women friends, who struggle to find their way in post-communist Poland. The small events of their lives represent universal feelings of being trapped and lost in a new world, in contrast to the successes of the dark side of democracy - drug dealing, crime and pornography. By its very nature, the film creates a picture of provincial Poland after democracy, but its charm is in the understated relationship between the two friends and the people around them and in the mosaic structure that builds up the film piece by piece.

Life is not easy on women in the Polish countryside.
20 February 2000 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

For a railroad man it must be painful to see all the careless walking about in the yard, where much of the action in this movie is going on. Two young women, one of them employed by the Polish railways, face the challenges of the awkward periods between school and husband, between country life and living the big life, between Warsaw Pact's Poland and European Union's Poland. The movie failed to catch me, however.
