I'll use the dreaded word: Pretentious
30 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Based on the bestselling controversial novel of the same name written by youth prodigy Dorota Masłowska this movie is based on a book that was supposedly unfilmable. At the helm another next generation artist Xawery Żuławski, who has the unenviable task of stepping into the shoes of Andrzej Żuławski. Opposite him in front of the camera is Borys Szyc, who plays the title character Silny (and for a brief scene himself) as well as some of the finest actors of the young generation. Together they delve into the story of a blockers (uneducated young inhabitant of decrepit apartment blocks) called Silny, his wacky love relationship with Magda, his cocaine and coca cola rushes as well as his unrealised dreams and aspirations. Or is it? Maybe its really about disassociation of culture, life and society from itself, which results in a collage of chaos? Or maybe it's about the pain of creation? Or maybe...

A lot of maybe's, but not necessarily a lot of interest in really making this philosophical enough for it to work. In the end it feels superficial and forced. Pretentious is a cliché ridden word, but it works more than anything to this movie. The story is just an excuse, while the wildly obscene, but surprisingly poetic language of the characters is there to add depth. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but most of the time you are fully aware of how fake the whole movie is. And you really don't need Dorota Masłowska on screen playing herself to notice that the movie is farcical and that the character of Silny is surreal and like taken from the pages of a comic-book. Taking breaking the fourth wall to a whole new level this movie doesn't however convey enough real depth to make you want to analyse it. It may work for some, but I myself was so disinterested with the movie, that I half-watched the last 30 minutes (which were terrible by the way and destroyed any positive credentials the movie had up until then).

In the absence of a real plot the message reeks of soggy self-importance. But than again how seriously can you treat a movie in which a guy talks to his dick? In the end we are left with the feeling that we were steamrolled over by a MTV video on speed.

If anyone does want to watch this movie I suggest doing it for the exceptional acting of Borys Szyc (plus some very good backup performances by Roma Gasiorowska and a few others). Plus the movie does have a few comedic moments that should make you giggle in a nice way... But than again so does 'Date Movie'...
