Movie Info

A sad-sack neurotic tries to find solace from the nagging day-to-day stresses of academic life in this melancholy comedy, reminiscent of Krystof Kieslowski's White. Marek Kondrat plays Adam, a lifelong teacher butting up against school officials' strident budget cuts; to escape the madness of his life, he plans a trek to the sea to re-evaluate his life.

Critic Reviews for Dzien swira (Day of the Wacko) (The Day of the Freak)

All Critics (2)

  • An uneven and downbeat blend of lowbrow humor, literary character drama, and crude sociopolitical satire...

  • A stunning surprise and certainly among the best films of the Vancouver Film Festival, The Day of the Wacko is a film that deserves a wide release stateside.

Audience Reviews for Dzien swira (Day of the Wacko) (The Day of the Freak)

  • Oct 13, 2012
    Maret Koterski's darkly comedic account of a neurotic schoolteacher is every bit as disturbing as it is hilarious. Maret Kondrat's ferocious performance fits the role like a glove, resulting in one of the more unlikable yet relatable characters out there. "Day of the Wacko" is a smart, sometimes crude satire that works most of the time, and it's almost impossible to forget.
