A fascinating psychological drama
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

After I saw this film I was really moved. It depicts the rotten society as it's seen by the eyes of an innocent child. The story is dramatic and unpredictable, yet very realistic and thus believable. The cast is just swell. Adam Kozlowski in the leading part as Jens, a boy who escapes from an orphange in Inac in Yugoslavia to look for his father makes a great performance, and Mirek Dymitrow in the supporting role as his friend Hassec shows proof of brilliant child's acting. In other parts you can see Boguslaw Linda, one of Poland's most acknowledged contemporary actors, and also Lars von Trier in a minor part. See this film and notice things you've never thought about!
