Trivia

The Hater was released on demand (VOD) just twelve days after its theatrical premiere--the very first mainstream Polish production to do so. A few days after its release, cinemas and movie theaters were closed in Poland due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak. So the distributor decided to make the movie available on demand.

User Reviews

 
Intelligent, free-thinking. Deserves watching.
30 June 2020 | by platerSee all my reviews

A film with intelligence, remarkably devoid of simplification in its social and political portrayal of our cold, ruthless world of postmodern haves and have-nots. The distant but all the more biting satire (or is that the right word?) of Poland's new urban bourgeoisie is very effective. Also one of the few recent films able to capture young people's permanent online emotional handicap.
