9 / 10 (1623)


In the course of two and half years, director Paweł Łoziński observes people passing by his balcony in Warsaw. He provokes conversations with strangers and neighbors about how they are coping with life. With every question, the stories become more intimate as each person reveals their uniqueness.

MUBI's take

In Paweł Łoziński’s cleverly inventive film, a humble patch of pavement in Warsaw might hold the key to the mysteries of the universe. Structured around casual conversations with passersby, this playful and heartfelt celebration of the everyday cherishes the cycle of the seasons—and of life itself.
