Movie Reviews

A dramatic story about a mother's search for her daughter's
Richard J. Brzostek | New England, USA | 07/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"White Soup / Zurek is a dramatic story about a mother's search for her daughter's child. The mother desperately searches for the father of the child so that the child can be named after him, a promise she made to her husband before he died.

Iwonka is a pretty 15-year-old who looks older than her age, but is mildly retarded. Iwonka's good looks cause her trouble, as men find her attractive and take advantage of her naivete.

Although the theme of "Zurek" is a bit depressing and sad, there are redeeming moments of hope and kindness; a cyclist, Matuszek, who liked the mother when she was younger, helps the women out, expecting nothing in return. Americans may feel the film is quite somber, but from the Polish perspective, "Zurek" is not so serious and filled with some great humor.

"Zurek" is directed by Ryszard Brylski, and a good choice for those people who enjoy Polish cinema.
