Storyline

A thin child of about 10, nicknamed "Crow" because she mimics the bird, has no friends and rejects a teacher's hug. At home, she is left on her own, her mom locks her out while entertaining a lover or is asleep. One morning, Crow sees a chubby, cherubic child hugged by both parents as the father leaves for work. When the toddler is left alone, Crow lifts her through the fence and kidnaps her. That day, Crow tries to mother the child, alternately playing with and scolding her, taking her to the beach, leaving shore in a boat, pushing her into the sea in a pique, and eventually carrying the sleeping child back home. Crow returns to her own mother and asks for affection. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of my favorites. Pictures, acting, music, sound all matches perfectly. The both girls are a mystery. Kedzierzawska told at the Berlinale, that after months of casting they already began shooting but the young actors failed and right on the marketplace in the city they shot, they found their "substitutes". Good example of the typical (?) polish way to mix fairy tale - atmosphere with artistic strength and docu-like approach to reality. It could change your view on childhood forever. AND it never crosses the thin red line to artsy kitsch, as unfortunately Kedzierzawskas following movie did (where she told the true story of a child murder with Hamilton-like way too soft pictures.)
