Squint your eyes

This Polish director (who can be compared to the Dutch Alex van Warmerdam) has made an unusually intriguing comedy about, well about nothing actually. The story deals with an ‘unemployed man’, who lives on a big farm, where he is surrounded by other jobless people and more or less lunatics. He lives a peaceful life, filled with a drinking a lot and being lazy. Now and then he does an effort to get a job again, but bureaucracy is dominating Poland, which leads to absurd situations.
One day the ten year-old daughter of his sister comes around, asking for shelter because of conflicts at home. Her family tries everything to get her back, but without success.
A black, absurd comedy in bureaucratic Poland. The acting is very enjoyable and the film contains enough original ideas.
