REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE | REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
dir. Nicholas Ray, US 1955, 111’ (in English with Polish subtitles)
Jim Stark is the new kid in town. He has been in trouble elsewhere; that's why his family has had to move before. Here he hopes to find the love he doesn't get from his middle-class family. Though he finds some of this in his relation with Judy, and a form of it in both Plato's adulation and Ray's real concern for him, Jim must still prove himself to his peers in switchblade knife fights and "chickie" games in which cars race toward a seaside cliff.
WARSAW 44 | MIASTO 44
dir. Jan Komasa, Poland 2014, 128’ (in Polish without subtitles)
A story of young Varsovians full of life and passion. They live their lives as if each day was to be their last. It's not, however, due to their bravado or recklessness - this attitude is a natural thing considering the reality they face. We get to know the movie's main characters shortly before the Uprising breaks out. They see their involvement in the underground movement not only as a patriotic duty, but also as an adventure, an opportunity to brag to their peers and impress girls.
