A CAT WITH A DOG (JAK PIES Z KOTEM)
Directed by JANUSZ KONDRATIUK
DECEMBER 6TH (18.30)
Estranged brothers Janusz (Robert Więckiewicz) and Andrzej (Olgierd Łukaszewicz) are both acclaimed filmmakers. When word is received that Andrzej, the elder of the two, has suffered a debilitating stroke, Beata (Bozena Stachura), aware that she has never met her brother-in-law, encourages her husband Janusz to reconnect with his sibling. When it becomes apparent that Andrzej's own wife Iga (former Kinopolis guest Aleksandra Konieczna, The Last Family) is neither willing nor able to offer her husband the care that he needs, Janusz takes him in, and the two slowly and grudgingly begin to re-establish their fraternal bond. This warm-hearted and moving comedy is based on the director's own experiences, and benefits from excellent performances by its four main actors.
We are delighted to welcome Olgierd Łukaszewicz, who will take part in a post-screening Q&A.
102 minutes. Poland, 2018. Subtitled. Digital.
