An overzealous captain in the Polish army (Robert Więckiewicz) gets discharged and goes around the bend; convinced that the government is out to kill him, he barricades his wife and children in their high-rise apartment, warning them against the dangers of Jews, homosexuals, technology, and big government and subjecting them to physical and emotional abuse. Though passable as social commentary—the captain’s ranting about declining morality and patriotism gives a good sense of the conservatism of Polish society—the film is hopeless as drama. Director Tadeusz Król draws the family in broad strokes, diminishing whatever allegorical insights the story might yield. In Polish with subtitles.
