Basically a story about some polish kids on summer vacation in the countryside. The story mainly follows Edek, an 11 year old buy who starts hanging out with the intriguing and flirting next door girl Monika, and how their friendship/relationship evolves. Edek is a simple boy, while Monika is the total opposite, boasting a different sophisticated lifestyle.
The film is beautifully shot with nice scenes in the nature featuring Edek and Monika, accompanied by nice music and moments that might make you compare the movie a bit to the Swedish director Roy Anderssons debut movie "A Swedish love story" which was released in 1970. A well-made portrait of what it might feel like to have your first real crush on another person, and the confusion that also follows.
The plot has a few twists but is kept relatively simple as the target group for the movie is the same age group as the kids in the movie, kids in their pre-teens. But an entertaining movie as well for adults.
