Critic Reviews for Edi

All Critics (2)

First-time writer-director Piotr Trzaskalski takes this slight celebration of the ordinary and makes it life-affirming.

When you mix social commentary about the Polish underclass with a Buddhist parable and gangster comedy, chances are that your message is going to get a little confused.
