"Very good little Polish film. Tells the story of a young man who loves Morrisey and James Dean and his girlfriend. His life spins out of control when his father dies and his girlfriend decides to move to Chicago to go to school. Lot's of dark comedy type humor between a young man deciding what to do with the rest of his life. Thoroughly enjoyed it!"
Louder Than Bombs: A Polish Film

""Louder Than Bombs" (2001) is a bit of an eerie movie. Giant smokestacks are in the background of many scenes, adding to the feel of the film. Throughout the film, everything looks a little dark and the fact that the film revolves around the funeral of Marcin's father is somewhat morbid. Marcin's girlfriend has just planned to move to the United States to study; so things just do not seem to go his way. I am not going to ruin the ending, but I liked it. Furthermore, the music throughout the film was very enjoyable.The main character, Marcin, looked a little familiar to me, but I couldn't place him until I saw the credits at the end. Rafal Mackowiak looks much different in this film than he did in "Gniew" (or "Anger", 1997). But my trouble recognizing him was mostly due to the major differences between the characters played.As this film is not rated, I will provide one here: In my view, this film is "Rated R" for nudity and occasional vulgar language. The film is 92 minutes long, spoken in Polish, and has non-removable English subtitles."
