Jak Najdalej Stad

I never cry

Piotr Domalewski
Poland, 2020, 90 Min

In Ireland seventeen-year-old Ola has to organise the transfer to Poland of the body of her father, who died in a container port. Much more important for her however is the question of where the money that he promised her for a car is. A powerfully narrated road trip with ironic moments and an impressive proximity to the protagonist.

 

 

The film starts in Poland. Ola during her driving test: her mobile ringtone is a vehement "Fuck the police" rap. That says a lot about this maladjusted young woman who lives in constant conflict with her mother and with loving affection for her paralysed brother. Shortly afterwards the action is transferred to Dublin and a labyrinth of shadowy employment agencies, a rather weird undertaker and a series of shady dealings that make intra-European labour migration look anything but a bright prospect. Nevertheless Piotr Domalewski refuses to reduce the plot to a morally or socially critical position, instead letting the young girl truly enjoy her first night abroad. With rigorous assertiveness Zofia Stafiej overcomes all possible obstacles in this, a brilliant screen debut, without realising that her greatest dream is not a car but the chance to get to know her never-present father.
