Audience Reviews for Zmruz oczy (Squint Your Eyes)
A nearly incomprehensible mish-mash that left this viewer scratching his head. There were some very cute scenes in here, and the humor was of the more subtle variety, but the story, the glue that would make it all hang together, was sorely lacking. One at times had the feeling that the subtitles were incomplete, or poorly translated to the point that it became difficult to understand what was happening and why. It is astounding to think that this film has won awards. The relationship between the caretaker, Jasiek (Zbigniew Zamachowski), and the young girl, Mala (Ola Proszynska), was touching but largely unexplained until well into the second reel. Several questions nag long after the movie ended. Why was the girl so disaffected with her parents? Where did she acquire an eagle, and where did it fly off to? Where did all of the various children come from, if this farm, or factory, or whatever it was, was so far out in the country? Was there some history between Jasiek and the mother? None of this was sufficiently explained for this viewer and distracted from being able to just enjoy what was presented.

Mala runs away from home, fleeing the idyllic surroundings of her parent's farm, and instead shacks up with her former school teacher, Jaciek. With her parents and Jaciek both attempting to persuade Mala to return home, the story undergoes a few twists and turns, providing a fascinating meditation on the wiles of youth, and the adult reaction to them. Fairly interesting story that's very well acted. It's won numeruous film awards including SKYY prize at the San Fransisco Int'l Film Festival.
