Editorial Reviews

Historia zapracowanego prokuratora, ktorego jedynym wytchnieniem jest spiew w chorze chlopieco-meskim. Film Podzielony jest na siedem czesci, odpowiadajacych nastepujacym po sobie dniom tygodnia. Kazda z nich rozpoczyna sie krotkim ujeciem na basenie. "Jeszcze niezle jest" - mowi Bohater wylaniajacy sie z wody w poniedzialek.

Jerzy Stuhr directs and stars in his 1999 suspenseful drama "A Week in the Life of a Man" (Tydzien z zycia mezczyzny). The film shows us seven days in the life of Adam Borowski, as played by Stuhr. The story is given structure by showing the days, in order, one at a time so we can watch and learn about Adam's life. Like a spider web, when one thread is tugged, the whole web of Adam's life is affected. Small events intertwine and change other parts of his life.

What makes "A Week in the Life of a Man" interesting is that we get to see the internal struggle a person has with right and wrong. The man tries to make his life better, even though he isn't the best of persons. Adam's week is a busy one, as he juggles his personal ambitions of being a prosecutor, the release of his book, and singing in a quire; his family obligations with his elder mother and supporting his wife's needs; and the overlapping parts, such as buying his first house.

"A Week in the Life of a Man" is packed with potential symbolism and room for interpretation, distinguishing it from less complicated movies. Just like Stuhr's earlier film "Historie milosne" (1997), "A Week in the Life of a Man" captures something deeper, similar to the films of Krzysztof Kieslowski.

If "Imitation is the deepest form of flattery" this film should be praised to the heavens. The viewer can almost see the meetings that took place prior to its creation..."What would 'he' have done?...How would 'he' have filmed this?...." The "he", of course, is the master Krzysztof Kieslowski. In the end imitation remains imitation. The acting is O.K., but one feels the actors are indeed "acting", which is very troubling. The "nurse" (?) who offers the very expensive magic bullet for Stuhr's mother was particularly bad. Not a film I could recommend.
