Movie Info

Christmas Eve. Ola and Wojtek, a young childless couple, invite the orphan Kacper to their home. Wojtek recalls his own childhood which was a nightmare because of his authoritative and heartless father. This special day spent in the company of a resolute and imaginative boy allows Wojtek to overcome his complexes and fears, to liberate himself from his feelings of guilt and to open his heart for love. A child, like Jesus, brings the protagonists the good news along with hope for a worthwhile and meaningful life

A beautiful-looking film with accomplished performances all around, Hania is head and shoulders above most Christmas movies, though is too intense for younger children.

Audience Reviews for Hania

[font=Times New Roman][size=3]HANIA is masterpiece![/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]Its multi-layered structure can be understood only as the story progresses and the director's as well as the operator's intention of shifting from an irritatingly rushed passage of short sequences to gradually slower and slower ones under the impact of the boy's influence on the couple's life become clear. In the acting of the main characters existed this same progressive adjustment to the kid's marvelous magical world of absolute love and timeless tranquility. The same 'husband who, initially, struck me as 'drewniany', 'sztuczny' , and utterly unlikable, became deeply moving in his gradual sublimation. And the same went for the wife, although she was visibly much sooner attuned to the spiritual happening. [/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]As for the boy: he was simply perfect and equally perfectly directed - without pathos, without any unnecessary melodrama. His face, transcended by absolute love, reflected the Christmas miracle will remain vividly in my mind. [/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]Stefan Wenta[/size][/font]
