It's bitter cold in Poland this winter.

People don't want summer stuff.

- Doesn't he get that?

- Yes, uncle, but he needs another week.

The winter coats'll be here

in a week, right?

- My word of honour!

- He promises.

- Right. He promises...

- F*** it, it's been a month already.

We've got not choice.

His prices are the best in the region.

O. Let's wrap this up.

How much?

- Asri, how many bags did they take?

- 30

And two bags free!


F***ing Arab, but you see -

he gave us two bags free!

- You have to negotiate!

- We'll see next week.

- Cold enough...

... to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.


usiness isn't so good...

but here's a bit extra for Christmas.

Thanks, uncle.

And the smokes? Did you remember?

- They only had lights.

- Cool.



- No, really. See you.

- Thanks. ye for now.

Give your parents a kiss. Tell them

we'll be at the party on Thursday!

Great. Dad'll be pleased.

Safe journey!


'efore the storm'... 4 letters.


Give us a harder one!


That's it!

Comes from outer space

in sci-fi literature and cinema.


- No...

- No?

It's 4 letters!



- Look what I found for the little fella!

- rilliant!

- They've got them in red as well...

- That one's cool!


Welcome to Poland!

- Want me to drive?

- No!

ut we'll stop for a break.



Aren't you going to eat that?

The best meat's near the bone.

And what can I get you for dessert,


Nothing thanks.

Can't I even tempt you to a couple

of our warm, sweet dumplings?

The spirit is willing, ogusia...

ut the flesh is weak...

Now Zygmunt,

you'll have me in tears in a minute...

A woman of character,

no two ways about it!

And well ready! Why not give her hand

with the washing up?


Not at my time of life.

Will you pay?

I'm going for a smoke.

Goodbye, ogusia

and see you next week!

ye for now, Zygmunt...

I'll keep the dumplings warm for you!

Has something spoiled

your dad's appetite?

The doctor warned him

about his cholesterol...



One of the darkest pages

in our history:

the start of martial law.

December 1981.

he New Boleslaw mine goes on strike.

The communist authorities decide

- to send in the security squads.

- Dad, come and see!

7 Solidarity members lose their lives,

7 martyrs to freedom,

lost to the bullets

of a murderous system.

29 years on and the man who led that

crack security squad is on trial again.

he courts have yet to prove his guilt.

Two earlier trials were dismissed.

Will this, the third,

finally reveal the truth?

he accused has already

caused an uproar,

testifying that there was an agent

of the Security Service

among the strike leaders.

The victims' families are outraged...

Ms va, what are your thoughts

about the first hearing?

The accused has one aim;


to prevent the trial continuing

and evade responsibility yet again!

It's the third trial. After so long,

people are saying it's relentless...

But do you think it's normal that

the man who killed my father,

shot him at close quarters, has been

running around free for 29 years?

All we want is justice,

so that our children can grow up

in a country that isn't afraid of the truth!

Come on, Mum!

xcuse me, please.



Eva was on television!

They interviewed her!

How about that?

- Where?

- In court, with her mum.

Oh yes, it's all starting again...

If it amuses them, then good luck to them!

Just so long they leave me out of it.

- Want me to drive?

- No, really. I'm fine.

- Hi.

- Hiya.

Did you see them at each

other's throats yesterday?

- Got off to a good start, right?

- What?

- The trial!

- Don't talk to me about that circus...

- Hi Rysiu.

- Hi.

- How's it going?

- It's winter, my friends!

- Winter!

- You going to unload that today?



Grandpa's here!

Everything O?

Are you tired?

Not him!

Spent the whole trip snoozing!

You're the one who didn't want

to hand over the wheel!

My star...

Hello, darling!

You didn't look at all bad

on television...

Oh, sure...

I was as red as a beetroot!

ut you're even better in the flesh!

Is Tommy going to eat something too?

A little bit...

Mummy will give you

your bottle in a minute.

The trial...


What do you need all that for, Eva?

And taking your mother along, too.

Stirring up the past's the last thing

she needs right now.

- ut she wants to be there.

- What the hell for?

You won't hear any of the truth anyway!

This time, it'll happen.

The new judge is determined.

And most of all, she's young.

It's a new generation, Dad.

She's brilliant! Really!

And just what can she

do with no evidence?

The commies destroyed

all the paperwork in '89.

- There's nothing! Not one scrap of paper!

- Dad...

They should have hung those red sons

of b*tches once and for all!

on appetit.

I don't fancy a Merc...

You might not fancy one -

but a 2.4 Turbocharged Direct Injection...


My brother-in-law's

going to do up the bodywork.

- Two weeks and it's burn rubber!

- Finished the cabbies' course?

Almost. One more exam on Friday

and that's it...

How about you?

Going to start?

I'm thinking about it.

ut it's expensive...

Five! For the licence

and everything, man!

- Five grand?

- Five grand!

So what? No pain, no gain...

like I said to Gosia,

"If we're in the red in a year,

we'll piss off abroad!"

- You said that two years ago.

- Yeah, but Gosia wanted to come back!

I'd have f***ing stayed in Ireland,

no discussion!

- You here?

- Yup. So, next week?

My deep respects, Sir!

To be perfectly frank, he wasn't

at all nice, not the slightest bit.

So please don't feel unduly sorry for him.

We're not going to feel sorry

for the dragon either, are we?

Is it tasty?

Where did he live, that dragon?

Is that it?


You'd look gorgeous in this.

- ut isn't it a maternity dress, Pawel?

- Yes, exactly, a maternity dress...

So it's home and Pampers for me

and you on the road all the time!

Thanks a lot!

ut that'll be over after Christmas...

ut darling,

I have exams after Christmas.

Honestly, just a few more grand

and that's it.

And have you already talked to dad?

Well, almost...


e careful!

I'm being careful.

Here it is!

So pop it in!


No, he's still asleep.

Hello, Tommy!

My wife's not here...

Yes, this evening...


Some reporter just phoned.

Wanted to talk to you about the trial...

- Reporter?

- Yes. He's going to phone later.

I've already done my bit...

I've said everything I had to say...

And what use will it be?



No, his son...

I'll see.

Actually, he can't talk right now.

O, I'll pass that on. Thank you.

And now it's that guy

from Solidarity who's called.

- Which one?

- The one you don't like. The young one.

What does he want?

I mean, he knows I'm not active any more.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky Prullansky (Spanish: [xoðoˈɾofski]; born 17 February 1929) is a Chilean-French filmmaker. Since 1948, Jodorowsky has worked as a novelist, a storyteller, a poet, a playwright, an essayist, a film director and producer, an actor in cinematic and theatre productions, a theatre director, a screenwriter, a film editor, a comics writer, a musician and composer, a philosopher, a puppeteer, a mime, a psychologist and psychoanalyst, a draughtsman, a painter, a sculptor and a spiritual guru. Best known for his avant-garde films, he has been "venerated by cult cinema enthusiasts" for his work which "is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation".Born to Jewish-Ukrainian parents in Chile, Jodorowsky experienced an unhappy and alienated childhood, and so immersed himself in reading and writing poetry. Dropping out of college, he became involved in theater and in particular mime, working as a clown before founding his own theater troupe, the Teatro Mimico, in 1947. Moving to Paris in the early 1950s, Jodorowsky studied mime under Étienne Decroux before turning to cinema, directing the short film Les têtes interverties in 1957. From 1960 he divided his time between Paris and Mexico City, in the former becoming a founding member of the anarchistic avant-garde Panic Movement of performance artists. In 1966 he created his first comic strip, Anibal 5, while in 1967 he directed his first feature film, the surrealist Fando y Lis, which caused a huge scandal in Mexico, eventually being banned. His next film, the acid western El Topo (1970), became a hit on the midnight movie circuit in the United States, considered as the first-ever midnight cult film, garnering high praise from John Lennon, which led to Jodorowsky being provided with $1 million to finance his next film. The result was The Holy Mountain (1973), a surrealist exploration of western esotericism. Disagreements with the film's distributor Allen Klein, however, led to both The Holy Mountain and El Topo failing to gain widespread distribution, although both became classics on the underground film circuit.After an aborted attempt at filming Frank Herbert's 1965 science fiction novel Dune, Jodorowsky produced five more films: the family film Tusk (1980); the surrealist horror Santa Sangre (1989); the failed blockbuster The Rainbow Thief (1990); and the first two films in a planned five-film autobiographical series The Dance of Reality (2013) and Endless Poetry (2016). Meanwhile, he has simultaneously written a series of science fiction comic books, most notably The Incal (1980–1989), which has been described as having a claim to be "the best comic book" ever written, and also The Technopriests and Metabarons. Accompanying this, he has also written books and regularly lectures on his own spiritual system, which he calls "psychomagic" and "psychoshamanism" and which borrows from his interests in alchemy, the tarot, Zen Buddhism and shamanism. His son Cristóbal has followed his teachings on psychoshamanism; this work is captured in the feature documentary Quantum Men, directed by Carlos Serrano Azcona. more…
