Polski Film

Synopsis

I might be playing myself but it doesn’t mean it’s me!

Four famous Czech actors, schoolmates – Matonoha, Liška, Daniel and Polášek made their dream come true and decided to make a film together. The project was financed by Polish co-producer Glowacki, directed by their colleague Budař, another colleague Plod(á)ková took over a role of production manager and so it all started.

However, the initial idyll quickly perishes. Their attempt to shoot locations of Brno in Cracow, Polášek’s catholic faith, Daniel’s alter ego Havlát, Liška’s unintelligible pronunciation and Matonoha’s financial wheeling and dealing turn the shooting into a fight for life in the middle of Beskydy hills.

Polski Film – a film about friendship and absurdity of actor’s life balancing between reality and illusions.

About the film

Polski Film is a film about actors, which means it is about people who oscillate somewhere between reality and illusion and sometimes they lose a notion of their own whereabouts. In the leading roles you can see popular Czech actors Liška, Daniel, Matonoha and Polášek who portray themselves. They put at stake their own identities and motives from their real lives. In the film it all blends with fiction and creates a phantasmagorical story of making a film which does not turn out very well.
In Polski Film we returned to our experiments from the end of 90’s where we combined fiction films and documentaries. It is an expression of film-making freedom and we refused to take into consideration any genre rules. We tell this story the way it needs to be told.
