A decent young photographer chronicles everyday life in a crumbling district of Warsaw
29 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

This film was shown in Romania as part of the European Film Festival week. This story of everyday life in Praga, a near-slum district in Warsaw, is true, honest and very powerful. The photographer seems to be the only "normal" person in a scenario populated by street urchins who are expert thieves, a bunch of vodka-swilling but friendly drunks, a hairdresser who runs a brothel and is regularly beaten up by her lover, a violent criminal on parole, an ex-cop, a newsagent who knows all the local gossip, a head-butting bouncer, and three camera-snapping Japanese tourists who seek out the low life with great enthusiasm. The photographer has to make moral compromises right through the film, and turns on the smooth businessmen who employ him. Overwhelming and highly recommended.
