Few days from the life of one house
9 May 2008 | by mademmiSee all my reviews

The movie is based on real experience of the main actor. Young photographer, kicked out by his girlfriend is forced to move in to a ruined house in Praga district of Warsaw. Of course he is shocked since the life there differs from the posh center of the Polish capital. The owner of the flat asks him to prepare photos documenting the house and its neighborhood to claim funds for its renovation. He starts his assignment and takes photos of the house and the people living there, their drinking, quarrels, kids playing football, house falling apart etc. He of course faces some problems, especially with a little hooligan who steals his camera. The plot gets complicated when the boy gets hit by a car and when it appears that the owner does not want to renovate the house but demolish it. The movie shows such things which one normally does not see while visiting Warsaw, true "rezerwat". People are living in a rally bad conditions, but they have something that others do not have - feeling of community and belonging somewhere.
