Polish "Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind"
5 July 2009 | by (Szczecinek, Poland) – See all my reviews

This movie is a adaptation of a extraordinary book. Released in 2002 (author was 21 then) it divided polish book market. Some of them noticed the Blue Note, but some thought it was graphomania, botched story about pathetic people. I bet film will cause the same diversity of opinions. I didn't read the entire book, but from fragments I have seen I can say I probably would hate it, because of the language, which is so chaotic and disturbing.

But the film I liked. I liked a lot. Director dared to use new forms, which is not a common thing in polish cinema. Movie is very "bravado", it offers decent fight scenes and special effects. Someone compared the director to Quentin Tarantino. I'm sure this comparison is too big, but if those people can be in the same row, it's because of alterity. They both offer something new - in this case, something you cannot see in Polish cinema nowadays.

Another word for actors. Borys Szyc proved he's not a sissy. Good choice for leading role, he meets the great expectations. He's both hilarious (it has comedic parts, but it's definitely not a comedy movie, as some has labeled it) and disturbingly "not so stupid" in drama parts. Additional praise for Roma Gasiorowska.

I'd recommend Wojna polsko-ruska to anyone who wants to see something new, something different. Who's (even a little bit) tired of conventional movies. I believe people who dislike extreme mediums might find it very hard to follow (resulting in notes on film portals... sadly). But as far as you read single good review ("Both hilarious and engrossing, something very different and interesting") and compare it with negative reviews (most of them are like "It's stupid, i don't understand it. Give me Gladiator again"), you'll know what you're gonna deal with.

Great movie, but for open minded people. Polish "Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind"!
