Experimental, Surrealistic and Intriguing Exposition of Images in a David Lynch's Style Short
A young man seats on a chair in an empty apartment and plays a cassette recorder. He has recollections of his work, driving a car for a weird bald and fat man, entwined with moments with his gorgeous girlfriend. He has also non-sense daydreams with weird strangers around a table.
I have just watched "Dym" a.k.a. "Smoke" three times trying to find a clue to understand the plot. I have even checked the dictionary, where I found that smoke can also mean "something insubstantial, unreal, or transitory".
I honestly did not understand the meaning of this exquisite short, and it seems that it is an experimental, surrealistic and intriguing exposition of images in a David Lynch's style.
The good points are the magnificent and stylish cinematography and the perfect framing and camera work. I do not know the débutant director Grzegorz Cisiecki, the cast and the crew, but based on his age, it seems that he is still non-professional. Therefore his promising work is really impressive and the high-quality of "Dym" seems to be a work of highly-skilled professionals. My only remark is the absence of a clear plot summary since even Buñuel has storyline in his surrealistic films. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
