Editorial Reviews

Veteran Polish actor Olaf Lubaszenko, whose career was launched in Krysztof Kieslowski's Decalogue (Episode 5, aka "A Short Film About Love"), sits in the director's chair for this offbeat mix of gangster action and romantic high jinks. Struggling cartoonist Kuba falls passionately in love with beautiful young singing star Naomi. But, the singer's friends and companions object, including Diamond, Naomi's former lover and small-time gangster who has big plans for her career. Caught between love and fear, Kuba feels like a coyote in a trap. and everyone knows what a coyote does when he's caught in a trap..

"Coyote's Morning" is a comedy about a comic book artist (Maciej Stuhr) who is not up to date on current events. He falls in love with a woman, who turns out to be a famous singer. Their love has some obstacles, including local gangsters that have their own ideas for the fate of the couple. The events get a bit crazy, but this makes it all the more funny.

Olaf Lubaszenko has come a long way since he played the "peeping Tom" in Kieslowski's "Decalogue." Now, he directs films in addition to acting in them. Lubaszenko's comedies have a good dose of crude and vulgar humor mixed in, and this film is no exception.

"Coyote's Morning" is not on the same level as his masterpiece, "Boy's Don't Cry," but nonetheless, it's quite funny and well worth seeing, if only for a refreshing break from the more serious and depressing Polish cinema of recent years.

If I were to sum up this film by Olaf Lubaszenko with just one word I'd say: mediocre. Arguably, it is equally difficult to make a truly good comedy as it is to create a serious drama. For a good comedy is just another way of depicting the reality and I'd expect it to be... well, intelligent, educated, revealing and somewhat surprising . Unfortunately, the reality of contemporary Poland, in my opinion, is not portrayed in this film much beyond old clichés and stereotypes. As a satire, therefore, this film is a complete failure. Yes, there are some fairly funny moments and I can't accuse it of completely distorting the world around but that's about it.

"Kuba, a struggling cartoonist, and Naomi, a beautiful Polish singer, fall madly in love. But her former lover, a gangster, has other plans for Naomi and for her new love." So says the editorial description.

The plot, I guess, is good enough for a nice movie but: we don't see much of a "creative struggle" Kuba allegedly suffers, other than his declaration; the love affair isn't all that steamy, or romantic, if you will; Naomi - although very pretty indeed - doesn't sing any great hits, just a couple of a so-so songs, one of them being an old, reheated, song from the Sixties. The gangster, Naomi's ex-lover, is all too predictable in his plots against the couple and so on and so on. Just about everything we see in the movie is, again, stereotypical, conventional and shallow.

I guess if one has to kill an hour and a half of time and there is nothing else to do - go watch it, otherwise I'd spent time doing something else.
