DECEMBER 3RD (18.30)
11 MINUTES (11 MINUT)
Director: Jerzy Skolimowski
On an ordinary day on and around Warsaw’s Grzybowski Square, the lives of a disparate group of people overlap over the course of 11 minutes, leading to an unexpected chain of events that will decide many of their fates. Among them are: a beautiful young actress, newly-wed, but at risk of falling prey to an oleaginous director (Richard Dormer); a hot dog vendor with a troubling past; a motorcycle courier making illicit deliveries; and a broken-hearted woman finding comfort in her loyal dog. Made with real verve, the film works as both brash thriller and depiction of the vagaries of fate.
82 minutes. Poland-Ireland, 2015. Subtitled. Digital.
