Baby Bump

Baby Bump

Kuba Czekaj
Poland, 2015, 90 Min

Coming of age can be a difficult period of life: you have to deal with constant unexpected changes to your body. Add to that the incessant attentions of an overbearing mother, to whom you'll always be her “little man”, and there soon comes a point when you have to draw the line. And that's not to even mention relations with the opposite sex...

It is in this exact period of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly that eleven-year-old Mickey finds himself. He's not a child any longer, but otherwise remains unsure of his identity; the girls are certainly starting to exert a certain attraction, he can't stand the transformation his body is going through however. In fact the only aspect of his new life that might be termed “normal” is the fact that Mickey is able to supplement his pocket money with earnings from his “clean” urine samples, a valuable commodity now that the school headmistress has declared her very own war on drugs.

Should this emotional roller coaster of a film leave you confused don't despair, that's in the very nature of this boundary-pushing work from director Kuba Czekaj. PN
