Wednesday, Thursday Morning. Wilding Warsaw style. Film review

(Sroda, czwartek rano) written and directed by Grzegorz Pacek. Poland 2007.
From the Thessaloniki FF, 2007
It’s a shaky camera ride through the drab streets of Warsaw that begins with Pawel Tomaszewski entering an airline ticket office with his bicycle and gaining attention by claiming loudly that his girlfriend has just died. As it turns out, this is untrue, but it is a foreshadowing of the tragic events that follow. After braving the bullies in his apartment building hallway, and daring a road rager to hit him with his car, (for which he ends up in a neck brace), something good finally happens to him. He meets up with a girl that represents the joy of life, played by Joanna Kulig.
