I Am (English title)
Режиссер: Dorota Kedzierzawska
Время: 96 минут
An eleven-year-old (Piotr Jagielski) escapes from an orphanage and returns to his
hometown where the other kids call him "Mongrel" and his young alcoholic mother
(Edyta Jungowska) kicks him out again. Undaunted, he sets up quarters of his own in an abandoned barge.
"Mongrel's" survival stratagems and day-to-day encounters show he's not only resourceful but
a fundamentally good person. He and an unhappy girl his age (Agnieszka Nagorzycka) from a posh house
nearby discover a sense of affection and love in each other's company. "Mongrel" forages,
sells scrap metal, and deals with some of the adults in town. Dreaming of being a poet some day,
he avoids the bad kids who chase him and sniff glue and doesn't drink or smoke.
