I can’t go to the festival but I still wanted to leave my comment, my favourite Polish movie is dzień świra, so funny and so sad at the same time
Thanks a lot for sharing that Juan! 🙂
“szczesliwego Nowego Jorku” is one of my favourite Polish movies as it shows so many boundaries and different sides of history. I treat that film as an educatory point for young people that cannot imagine that so many problems people had to get through.
Thanks for your comment and welcome to the contest! 🙂
It’s impossible for me to choose the ONE and ONLY but on the list of favourite Polish films is BOGOWIE.
It tells a true story which I can relate to (my grandpa was one of te first patients), superb acting, outstanding cinematography and music.
Thanks for that Agata, true, hard to choose one ?
For me it’s Miś and zimna wojna
Thanks for sharing that! ?

I can not choose a movie but I must mention Miś Uszatek, as simple as that. It’s beautifully made, and they were showing it also in Finland in the 90s. I grew up watching it and I loved it. I was a bit of a lonely child and teddy bears were an important part of my life. Now as a grown up living here in Poland, in a funny way it makes sense I grew up loving this classic.
One of my favourite polish movies is Cicha Noc. The film shows problems that no one talks about and what reality looks like for ordinary people. It is a good film for foreginers who want to find out about our traditions. It also shows that your life can change completly in just a second.
Film that i have big sentiment to, what make it one of my favorite, is “Kiler”. It’s iconic comedy by Juliusz Machulski and great performance of Cezary Pazura, Janusz Rewiński and Jerzy Stuhr.
My favourite Polish movie is “Awantura o Basię”. Its an old Polish movie directed by Maria Kaniewska.I like this film because it shows that you don’t have to be related to someone to treat them as your family. It’s a very touching story of a little girl named Basia who was able to unite a lot of people in a very short period of time.
My favorite movie is “7 uczuć” as, in my opinion, it’s taking us to our childhood for almost 2 hours. On the one hand it’s giving us chance to remind ourselves that we all are children with problems of adult, on the other hand it’s a bit absurd, abstract and reflective. Persoally for me it’s kind of new wave of polish cinematography.
I mean, it is really tough to decide which polish movie is my favourite one, but when I have to choose just one movie, definitely IT will be Rejs (The Cruise). Rejs was released in 1970 by Marek Piwowski and Janusz Głowacki and has become iconic in Polish cinematography. Rejs is a parody of the entire communist system with an excellent acting and hilarious dialogue. I love this dry sence of humor.
My favorite Polish film is the very recent Cold War by Paweł Pawlikowski, i could have chosen the wonderfully directed Ashes and Diamonds by Wajda or the beautifully written Three color trilogy by Kieślowski.
But i think there’s no other movie that conveys such sublimely the fighting, romantic spirit of the Polish people while contrasting it against the harsh historical reality of life in Poland.
It’s a movie that starts by showing us both a political and institutional struggle to create and conserve both art and culture, with such graceful singing and dancing. But alluring us with a brooding tale of unrequited love from our two talented protagonists.
And although the shot drinking scene in Ashes and Diamonds will remain unbeaten as the best, the tabletop Dancing of Joanna Kulig will forever be remembered as one of Polish Cinema’s greatest moments 🙂
I consider “Rezerwat” as my favorite Polish movie. Why so? It mixes the beauty and the ugliness of Praga district. It became way more meaningful to me once I had a chance to live for a short time literally next to the block of flats showed in the movie. Then it occurred to me that this movie showed the reality and everyday life better than any documentary movie. And Sonia Bohosiewicz is simply extraordinary in that movie.
