Life feels good by Kino Świat

The second London Polish Film Festival offers you two more screenings this month. On Thursday, June 23 we will present the film by Maciej Pieprzyca Life Feels Good (Chce się żyć).The film was inspired by a documentary by Ewa Pieta from 2004 called Like a Butterfly.

It tells a story of Mateusz, an intelligent young man, who suffers from severe cerebral palsy and is wrongly diagnosed at a very young age as mentally disabled without a way of communicating with others.

 For many years Mateusz struggled to be understood by people around him unsuccessfully until he meets a therapist willing to see his efforts. The film is narrated by the main character himself as a series of his internal monologues and accompanied pictures. This warm, full of humour and very well played story, especially by duo Kamil Tkacz/David Ogrodnik – Mateusz boy and man sends a positive message – do not give up, face obstacles and enjoy life as it is.

 Life Feels Good  was  awarded  at many film festivals in Europe and North America. In Canada,  it was awarded Grand Prix at the  Montreal Film Festival and chosen to be presented in Toronto in 2014 at the European Union Festival and Polish Film Festival Ekran.
