Editorial Reviews

Polish director Janusz Kidawa (Ultimatum) brings us a very personal film with a conscience. Three construction workers live together in a tiny private apartment while building a new factory. Their foreman, Kolecki, is supposed to be supervising the production line, but instead he abuses his position by neglecting his responsibilities. After Kolecki is fired, the three friends are determined to stay the course and finish the factory.
With its focus on the dissatisfaction of everyday life and the breakdown of moral values, Kidawa s film echoes the Cinema of moral concern associated with Krzysztof Kieslowski and Krzysztof Zanussi. HORIZONTAL LANDSCAPE offers a snapshot into an era when Communism still dominated society and culture, but unrest and dissatisfaction signaled change on the horizon.

"Horizontal Landscape" (Pejzaz Horyzontalny) is an entertaining coming of age Polish film from the late 1970s. It has a cast of characters that are believable and likeable. Just as the name of the movie is about the changes that a landscape can take as a forest can be turned into a building made of cement and steel, the people behind it can transform just as fast.

The three young men in their 20s meet on their first day at work and end up moving in together in an apartment. They all came to work for their own reasons: Student, who is a bit on the emotional side and ends up meeting his girl friend at the store; Curley is a bit of a wise guy and ran out of his wife because she nagged him too much; and Tytus, who often wears a straw hat and sings songs while strumming on his autistic guitar. The three don't get along right away and occasionally argue but they end up becoming great friends.

They all work on a construction job together and their work brings them together. Their manager watches them from a tower nicknamed Olympia, thinking of himself as a sort of god. He observes his workers with a telescope and commands them with a loud speaker. Although he helps them at times, he also causes them some problems. They all work together and grow up together too as they face their challenges.

"Horizontal Landscape" is a great story about friendship and becoming an adult. They get into trouble on occasion but pull together to help each other out and can be pretty funny at times too. One of the most appealing parts of this film is that their interactions really pull you in and make you want to watch their drama.
