The first feature from documentarian Piotr Trzaskalski is a warm-hearted story of Edi, a homeless scrap-dealer who ekes out a meager living with his simple-minded buddy Juri Played with stoic grace by Henryk Golebiewski (Sara), Edi and Juri can barely survive in modern-day capitalist Poland. His prospects improve when he meets two tough guys in the liquor business who hires him to look after their beautiful teenage sister. But, the young girl leads a more complicated life than her brothers realize, and Edi gets caught in the middle, with disastrous results. Golebiewski's touching performance as the long-suffering Edi highlights the film, while director Trzaskalsi creates a melancholy atmosphere worthy of Robert Bresson or Andrei Tarkovsky, the directors key influences.
