I Never Cry (15)
2020 | Poland | Dir. Piotr Domalewski | 98 minutes
A very popular audience choice when we watched this film at previews. Ola receives news that her estranged father, a migrant worker in Dublin, has died in a work incident. She sets off on a lone journey from Poland to Ireland to retrieve his body and her share of whatever money the man has left. We can only applaud her determination to overcome a barrage of indifference and bureaucracy in a language not her own. The film has been compared with the work of Ken Loach and Zofia Stafiei’s performance as Ola is very impressive.
