Jacek is a free-spirited young Polish man with a passion for heavy metal, his girlfriend Dagmara and his dog. When he and Dagmara take to the dancefloor, everyone runs for cover. Janek enjoys his existance as a cool misfit in an otherwise stuffy environment, and keeps his muscles toned working on a building site close to the Polish-German border where the world’s largest statue of Jesus is being constructed.
But his life is thrown badly off course by a terrible accident at work. Eagerly followed by the Polish media, Jacek becomes the first person in the country to receive a face transplant.
Winner of the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at 2018 Berlin Film Festival, this tragicomedy by acclaimed Polish director, Małgorzata Szumowska uses acerbic farce to consider conditions in modern-day Poland.
Director: Malgorzata Szumowska.
