Made in Poland

 
Boguś ist sauer. Eben noch Messdiener, tätowiert er sich ein deftiges „Fuck off“-Tattoo auf die Stirn und läuft marodierend durch die Stadt. Eine Ein-Mann-Armee gegen alle. Eine Rebellion, die trotz aller Lautstärke ins Leere läuft – denn nach dem Scheitern des Sozialismus und der Stagnation des Kapitalismus haben die Ideale der Vergangenheit und Gegenwart ihre Angriffsflächen verloren, sind deren Protagonisten selbst bereits gescheitert. Was bleibt, sind Schlager von gestern und das Raunen der Stimmen, die auf dem klerikal-konservativen Radiosender Radio Maryja nach nationaler Wiedergeburt rufen. Dazwischen Boguś, ganz klassischer „Rebel without a cause“ unter der Gesichtsmaske des Hooligan. (Bernd Buder)

“All the film tells us is that Boguś isn't much of a churchgoer. Aside from that, he's not a bad boy. He might be from the ‘hood, but he used to be an altar boy, attended vocational school, and is the son of a woman whose entire world is the Polish crooner Krzysztof Krawczyk. His imagination has been shaped by TV, he doesn't care for ‘fags’, neither does he enjoy American music. He dresses like a skinhead, but he’s probably not a fascist. He behaves like an imbecile, yet has the mental capacity to find a rhyme for ‘love’. He isn't good with girls, and has probably never had one, but he has a way of falling in love at first sight. Who or what has pushed him into the embrace of destruction?” (Jakub Socha)
