THE WHISTLE

POLISH TITLE: GWIZDEK

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Marcin is a young man that comes from a small village near Krakow. The film pictures him from three perspectives - his private life, his work life and his hobby - which is football. In each of these fields he seems to be quite clumsy. He doesn't rush his way towards adulthood - which his mother doesn't approve of. She expects him to make life-changing decisions, finding a better job and a wife. Marcin is also a burgeoning football referee - every week he has to bear unrefined comments and remarks about his work, made by players and fans alike of amateur teams.
