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...

All Movie Guide

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)

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.
