Storyline

Four boys act out games in a nearly barren landscape near a mining excavation where blasting is going on. The oldest, Szafran, is their leader. When he gets into a frenzy, so do the others: running barefoot through thistles, rubbing dirt in their hair, catching fish barehanded. Szafran says he is the Antichrist and gives orders. Are these games or something else? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The "huh factor"!
22 July 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is one of six films included in the collection "The World According to Shorts". For the most part, this is not a particularly good set of shorts, as I have seen many others with more memorable content than this rather disappointing DVD.

This film shows a group of Polish children following their ringleader. At first, their actions seem pretty normal for young boys, but later the ringleader just seems rather insane and antisocial. The boy is cruel, has sick fantasies of murder and declares that he's the Antichrist! Interesting kid, huh? Then, amazingly, the film gets even weirder.

While the film certainly gets points for being different, I also think the film has a serious case of the "huh factor". In other words, as you watch it and struggle in vain to understand it, you can't help but feel confused as well as asking yourself why you watched the thing in the first place! I know I sure did!
