Netherlands. Dir. Rosanne Pel. 2018, 86 mins. Digital projection. In Polish with English subtitles. With Erik Walyny, Ewa Makula. The way that confused emotions and raging hormones can erupt during adolescence is captured with almost documentary naturalism in writer/director Rosanne Pel’s debut feature, which is set in a rural Polish village. Eryk, the lumbering and likable protagonist, lives with an overbearing mother who looks young enough to be his lover. Living in a crowded home dominated by women, Eryk finds escape in trysts with his neighbor Klaudia. But his lust soon turns violent. Pel filmed over several years, capturing small moments and allowing the drama to unfold like real life.
