Inni Ludzie

63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

An urban drama about Kamil, a wannabe-rapper who should be getting his life and career going but instead gets high, roams around the city and starts an affair with a bored, rich housewife Iwona. It’s a polyphonic story about isolated people dreaming of love in the big city, a fresh, funky, and dark tale of modern society existing in the shadow of capitalism, where other people – neighbours, commuters, and passersby, become a modern incarnation of a Greek chorus, voicing the inner anger and frustration of the protagonists.
