Marcin has murder on his mind. He arrives in Warsaw with eyes only for his intended victims, but when fate drops their daughter in his path instead, what begins as an opportunistic means to access his would-be victims becomes something far more complex.
Krzysztof Skonieczny delivers a striking and unsettling portrait of angry youth in Hardkor Disko. Skonieczny adamantly refuses to explain why Marcin is so focused on killing this particular couple, instead employing a remarkably soulful performance from leading man Marcin Kowalczyk. Skonieczny is one of a new wave of European directors who exist in the intersection of old traditions and the new globalized world. It’s a position forcing them to create a language of their own, and what we’re seeing here are the first steps down that path.
