FNE at KVIFF 2013: The Girl from the Wardrobe


    WARSAW: Bodo Kox creates a colorful and original story about two
brothers who welcome a mysterious woman into their lives.


In The Girl from the Wardrobe Jacek takes
 care of his autistic brother Tomek. They have their own routine that
is broken when an elderly neighbor who looks after Tomek from time to 
time is unable to help them. Jacek has to turn to a mysterious girl
 who has just moved into their building. The autistic man strikes up an
 unlikely friendship with the beautiful, neurotic woman. The leading roles are
played by Piotr Głowacki, Wojciech Mecwaldowski, and Magdalena Różańska making her film debut.

    Kox gained
 recognition as an original Polish indie filmmaker. He made his debut 
with the off feature film Look-alike, which he directed and produced on his own in 2005. He is a directing student at the Polish 
National Film School in Łódź (PWSFTviT) and a graduate of the Wajda School.

    "I wanted
to make a film, that would have some value, saying something about an 
important and serious issue but diluted with humor because I think 
that having a sense of humor is the most important thing in life. I
 prefer laughter to sadness, but I also like movies that force the
 viewer to reflect," the director told FNE. 

    The film was produced by Documentary and Feature Film Production 
Company (WFDiF) in co-production with CANAL+
. The shoot took place in Warsaw in 
February and March 2012. The budget was 3,440,371
PLN (EUR 830,000). The film received production financing from
the Polish Film Institute. The distributor of the film
is Kino Świat informed FNE that the film was
seen by 14,000 viewers during its opening weekend
in Polish cinemas on 14 June 2013. International sales 
are managed by WFDiF.
