It is a bitter story about a middle-aged man who hates his life, other people and ultimately himself. Adam Miauczynski, the character known from director Marek Koterski's previous films, is a 49 year-old teacher who reads poetry during school lessons and later goes home swearing and calling his neighbours' names. The worst pain for him is the next 5 minutes of living. He doesn't accept himself and even everyday contacts with others cause his aggression. Though constantly dreaming of a romantic love, he is not bold enough to make his dreams come true.Written by
Just like in two previous films about Adam Miauczynski, director Marek Koterski considered casting Cezary Pazura in the lead role. However, he changed his mind because of the fact that Pazura was then associated too much with popular sitcoms, and although the film had many comic scenes, it was not a typical comedy anymore.

When we see the dog shitting under Adam's balcony, it firstly does it on thick, green grass but in the later scene when the dog is with a woman, it stands on bare ground without any grass. See more »
I'm afraid of the night. Maybe not, but I can't go to bed. Even tired and sleepy, i feel anxious. Why must this day end? Will nothing else happen? Before I go to bed, when evening approaches, I will pray to God in Heaven for the worst for my neighbor! I ask God to give him hell. Who am I? I'm a small pole, angry, envious and evil. What's my sign? Big bloody eyes. I pray to God, Mary and Josef to destroy that motherfucker, my neighbor and countryman, my fucking enemy. Make them burgle his garage...

DAY OF THE WACKO, directed by Marek Koterski, is a rather droll comedy about the daily life of an eccentric and depressed Polish high-school teacher. He's angry, lonely, underpaid, unappreciated, and can envision no end to his predicament. Imagine a film in which the ambient spirit of Eleanor Rigby is reconfigured as a very frustrated Polish, middle-aged nerd, and you come close to the tone of this dark farce. There are some scenes which are very funny, and others are just plain odd. Yet, overall, the film is worth a look. When the hero visits the beach to relax and unwind, he meets some of the craziest and bizarre characters that one could imagine. A few of these scenes are flat-out hysterical. Bonus Features are all in Polish without sub-titles.
