JAN KOMASA STRIKES AGAIN!!!! The 38 years old Polish Director of CORPUS CHRISTI returned this Spring with a MASTERPIECE, "THE HATER", a movie which is the creation of a genius. The brilliance of the story, of the actors, very young, as young and talented as their Director, of the camera, of the image, the Poetry of this wonderfully done movie renders us speechless. CONGRATULATIONS, Poland!!!
