WROCŁAW: Ireneusz Grzyb and Aleksandra Gowin are at work on a love triangle story that explores the power of auteur cinema and creates an intimate story about complicated romance.
Little Crushes follows Kasia and Asia, roommates running a small business. The two women clear out apartments after their owners abandon them or die. They meet Peter, a man who is coping with the break-up of his marriage, who suddenly falls deeply in love with Asia. The feeling is shared by the other woman and it's not long before the emotional balance comes to an end.
"We decided to direct Little Crushes because we were sure that we can make a film that will truly touch the viewers," said the directors in a joint statement. "Instead of watching just another serious of colorful image they will have a chance to enter this alternative reality and fall in love with the characters they meet. We want to do a film which will be telling the difficult stories in a simple way without pretending they are something outstanding.
The film is produced by Koi Studio with a budget of 250,000 EUR and co-produced by Fixafilm Postproduction House. Little Crushes received a grant of 436,705 PLN (104,054 EUR) from the Polish Film Institute.
