GIRL FROM THE WARDROBE, THE
BEST DEBUT FEATURE
Q&A WITH DIRECTOR BODO KOX
Jacek is a successful computer graphic artist who is lonely, despite being a hit with the opposite sex. His relationships rarely last long because he has to take care of his autistic brother, Tomek.
Because of his mental disability, Tomek has little contact with the outside world and Jacek, who has cared for him since their parent’s death, is his only friend. Their next-door neighbor is Magda, an odd, alienated and oversensitive girl who spends her time smoking weed while shut in her wardrobe or, every now and then, attempting suicide.
When one day Jacek has to rush for a business meeting he asks Magda to look after his brother. Unexpectedly Tomek and Magda find common ground and a strong relationship forms between this misfit girl and autistic boy.
The story of three oddball characters alienated from the outside world is presented with wit. In his brilliant black comedy Bodo Kox, a director well known on the Polish independent film scene, portrays a difficult and ultimately sad subject with humor and grace. The articulate dialogue and eccentric cinematography contribute to this surreal and funny tale of loneliness.
