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.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

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.

Audience Reviews for Edi


A moving little story with a lot more depth than you can find in films nowadays. Really, a tale of morality and gangsterism all rolled up into a snuggly little story of one kind man. It really gives you hope for humanity.
