Editorial Reviews

Veteran Polish actor Jerzy Stuhr (The Decalogue; Kingsize) leads a strong cast in this coming-of-age story based on real-life events. A handsome young musician named Gypsy busts out of jail one week before his release. He blows into town, where he meets and falls madly in love with 16-year-old Agatha, the daughter of an old-school Communist. Daddy demands that his dutiful daughter stop seeing her new boyfriend, but Agatha and Gypsy hit the road instead. Based on an actual event from the early 1990s in which the daughter of a Polish politician ran away with her beau, HIJACKING AGATHA captures the end of the Solidarity era in Poland.

Format: DVD
"Hijacking Agatha" is a roller-coaster romance about an under-aged girl who falls in love at first sight with a charismatic young man, who's just escaped from prison. The girl's father (Jerzy Stuhr) is infuriated with her erratic behavior, which, understandably, becomes her parents' nightmare.

Films occasionally capture the essence of an issue and can serve as an icon for all. "Hijacking Agatha" is a great example of how well film can tell a great story, this one being about a firecracker romance.

But more interestingly, it also realistically portrays Psychiatry and how it is often used -- an institutional control mechanism for people with undesirable behavior. As the parents disapprove of their teenager's romance, one solution is to commit her to a mental hospital. I found the realistic portrayal of Psychiatry very refreshing to experience, rather than the glamorized role it often is given in many films.

"Hijacking Agatha" includes several elements I've found in many Polish films -- it is unpredictable, quite serious, and not as happy a story as many might prefer. I enjoyed this movie's many twists and turns that kept me guessing, the action kept me on my toes, and it's underlining messages are more complicated and thought-provoking than the naive themes I find in many American films.

After watching "Hijacking Agatha," I understand why this popular film has attained "CULT" status in Poland, all the more so as it is reputed to be based on a somewhat sensationalized, yet true life story.
