Day of the Wacko (Dzien swira) was a huge hit in its native Poland, winning all sorts of awards, including Best Actor and Screenplay. That didn’t translate into a big international audience, though, as it was released straight-to-DVD in the USA. Its current sales rank at Amazon places it at #77,571 amongst films. But this dark little comedy about a man who hates everything definitely deserves a look.
Marek Kondrat stars as Adas, an obsessive-compulsive teacher who is slowly being driven mad by his noisy neighbors and annoying family. Adas is as mean-spirited as he is funny, and the film is propelled along by his imagination, and bitterly hilarious internal monologue.
