Borys Lankosz’s black comedy during the next PCfB show

Polish Cinema for Beginners


Next Thursday, March 15, we invite you to the second screening of the 10th edition of Polish Cinema for Beginners, in the New Horizons Cinema. Our second film, presented during the “family” season, will be “Reverse” by Borys Lankosz – the best Polish film in 2009, awarded Grand Prix at the Gdynia Film Festival and the Eagle of Polish Film Academy.

Set in the 1950s, Reverse tells the story of Sabina (Agata Buzek) – a modest employee of a publishing house, a "grey mouse", who her mother (Krystyna Janda) and grandmother (Anna Polony) unsuccessfully try to wed. All of the sudden, a handsome, although dark, man (Marcin Dorociński) turns up in her life and his presence starts a series of surprising events. Borys Lankosz’s black comedy, depicting three generations of Polish women, tells a lot about the horrors of the Stalinist era, but a bit about modern times as well.

educator and translator, currently working for the Bente Kahan Foundation and Chidusz magazine. The meeting will be led by Adam Kruk – film critic, journalist and
