Movie Info

Dwaj Ludzie z Szafy (Two Men and a Wardrobe) is the first short film by Roman Polanski to be screened publicly. It won festival acclaim in Oberhausen, Brussels, and San Francisco. Two men emerge from the sea carrying a large wooden wardrobe. They carry it throughout the city, but they get kicked out of a restaurant and a hotel. Eventually they get beat up by thugs who smash the mirror on the wardrobe. The two men return to the sea with their wardrobe. Theorists believe this film is about the nonconformist in society and the consequences of carrying a burden. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dwaj ludzie z szafa (Two Men and a Wardrobe)


Nothing special or outstanding in this film. Two men on an adventure carrying around a cupboard. There is a great shot at the beginning with the men emerging out of the ocean with the cupboard and another great shot at the end when the men walk around a child who is filling the visible beach with little sand castles with his bucket. They then go back into the ocean. Nothing too notable in between besides some mindless violence. More of an learning exercise, than a real attempt at a film.

Nice little short film by Polanski.

This is Polanski's most well known short, and it's a doozy. It's a surreal and odd little thing, and it is just overwhelmingly charming with it's absurdity and quirkiness. The music is terrific, the images neat, and Polanski's cameo as a hoodlum is also fun.
