The Red Spider
aka Czerwony pajak First screened in October 2015
Director: Marcin Koszałka. Cast: Filip Pławiak, Adam Woronowicz, Julia Kijowska, Wojciech Zieliński, Marek Kalita, Małgorzata Foremniak, Dorota Landowska. Screenplay: Marcin Koszałka and Łukasz M. Maciejewski (based on the short story "Lolo" by Marta Szreder). Twitter Capsule:
Hardly unmissable, given perpetual surfeit of serial killer dramas, but a taut, pointed study of mid-century Krakow.
Keenly rewarding for viewers invested in Polish history or culture, criminal pathology, or stylistic experiment. But not unique enough in its genre to constitute an event.
