Movie Reviews

A Touching Film About Two Scrap Metal Collectors
Richard J. Brzostek | New England, USA | 03/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Edi" is a movie about two scrap metal collectors. Edi (Henryk Golebiewski) and Jurek (Jacek Braciak) live simple lives. During the day they collect trash and during the night they drink away most of their earnings. Edi is kindhearted and tries to help others, even if he has to suffer himself as a consequence.

Two small-time thugs want Edi to tutor their sister, so she can pass her exams. Edi helps her with her studies, but gets more than he bargained for. When her brothers discover that she is pregnant, she lies to them, saying Edi is the father. They go ballistic and take vengeance on Edi.

"Edi" is sprinkled with several meaningful dialogues where Edi and Jurek express their philosophies about life. Overall, "Edi" is emotional and touching drama."
