My Roast Chicken

Film

Time Out says

Made for Poland's 'Generation 2000' TV slot, this disappointing drama follows the return of a young couple and their lively six-year-old boy from Canada to the mother-in-law's house in Lodz. The film captures the strains on their marriage in the confines of the house and the pressures of kick starting new jobs and a new life in depressed Lodz. The husband takes over a roast chicken business in Liberty Square; the wife enrols in a documentary film-making class - to compensate, she says, for her lack of communication skills. The ensuing marital crisis, however, is all too swiftly and unsatisfactorily resolved, the mechanics of compromise left opaque.
