Christmas Eve is when we want it to be
20 December 2002 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

These are the most memorable words uttered by Edi, who subjected to all kinds of obstacles has the strength to live his life, the strength that puts many of us to shame.

"Edi" is one of the most sad and most cheerful, ugliest and most beautiful films I have ever seen. It is sad because it shows the life which all people would like to avoid and the life which is ignored, forgotten and yet it exists. It is cheerful, because Edi tries to live his life the best he can. It is ugly, because it shows this side of life we all wish to forget. It is beautiful, because it shows that even junk collectors be honest, valiant and unyielding.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to be reminded that there is goodness and beauty even in the ugliest, poorest, seemingly worthless people.
