Polish Kids
21 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some questions about young people in Poland filmed nicely by veteran Polish cinematographer Jacek Petrycki, who may be best known as the cameraman for "Europa Europa".

I love the use of black and white. While it does not necessarily add anything artistic to the film, it does give it a different feel. Sort of an impoverished feel. And I love some of the responses. While the "I am in a hurry" response is typical, the idea that an opinion on such a neutral topic could be dangerous or wrong is interesting. Who doesn't have an opinion about kids today? The youth themselves are more talkative, and not in the most positive way. They say things like "we have no future" and "our prospects have been destroyed". Not in the cynical way of America's youth, but as though they really mean it. And, as Communism ended, perhaps they felt it deeper than most.
