July 10, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.

dir. Jerzy Stuhr, Polska 1997, 105’

Jerzy Stuhr directs himself in four separate stories of people who don't know how to handle love in their lives.  Stuhr illustrates the ironic truths of human destiny as his characters - a college professor, an army officer, a priest and a criminal - struggle between career and love. Humorous and sentimental, this internationally acclaimed film (winning the prestigious FIPRESCI award at the Venice International Film Festival) was one of the few Polish films in recent history to be both an artistic and a commercial success...
The film is dedicated to Krzysztof Kieslowski, and captures the powerful sense of drama and magic always found in Kieslowski's films.

July 24, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. Juliusz Machulski, Poland 2002, 92’

Director Juliusz Machulski takes a satiric bite out of show business with this entertaining spoof of the film industry. A film critic who complains regularly about poorly-made Polish films, a gangster who wants to help his girlfriend realize her dream of becoming a movie star and a cast and crew of strange characters - they all team up to create a great superproduction.

August 7, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. Marek Koterski, Poland 1999, 89’

Ajlawju (which is a cute "Polishized" spelling of “I Love You") is a romance, as well as a comedy. A story shows two lovesick characters in their selfish, foolish, and melodramatic, but never reasonable acts. Cezary Pazura and Katarzyna Figura star as lovebirds who let their hormonal impulses decide for them.

August 21, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. Maciej ?lesicki, Poland 1997, 107’

Maciej Slesicki's hit action/romance. Leon (obviously named after Besson's character), the 40-year-old former soldier (played by Bogus?aw Linda)  who is an alcoholic now, gets a job as a bodyguard. His duty is to take care of one of the maffia leader's daughters. His problems begin when he falls in love with the 16-year-old girl.

September 4, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. Artur Wi?cek, Poland 2002, 89’

A very warm film with a great dose of humour. An unordinary angel, Giordano (who likes rock music and prefers to spend time in purgatory with Elvis Presley than in heaven),  is sent down to Earth and by mistake ends up not in Holland but in Poland, in the city of Krakow, where he does good deeds and makes many mistakes in the process.

September 18, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. Konrad Niewolski, Poland 2003, 99’

Young man, ?ukasz,  gets arrested. Having no alibi, he is put in prison when he tries to survive in a world of hard obligatory prison principles. His hopes for release are diminishing, but he soon adapts to the circumstances. His system of values is being put to the test. After that nothing will be the same...

October 2, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.

dir. Krzysztof Krauze, Poland 1999, 100’

A gripping thriller about two entrepreneurs who become tangled in the web of a Russian thug. Two friends begin a business with the help of their Russian acquaintance who soon afterwards turns inexplicably violent and vicious and threatens their lives. Based on a true story, The Debt is a terrifying tale of ordinary men pushed to their limit.

October 16, 2007 (Tuesday), 4.00 p.m.
dir. W?adys?aw Pasikowski, Poland 1992, 104’

A crime thriller set at the turn of the 1980s and 90s, a time of national transition in Poland. The story follows a former KGB agent - now a policeman - as he attempts to eradicate the steadily growing influence of the mob in Poland. One of the most famous performances by Bogus?aw Linda, great Polish star who begun his career in Kieslowski’s Blind Chance.
