THE BOY ON A GALLOPING HORSE

dir.

Adam Guziński

2006, 1 h 15 min

The film inspired by Tarjei Vessas’s short story “The Wild Rider”. Jerzy, a writer whose creativity has burned out, lives far away from a city with his wife Maria and their 7-year-old son Jasiek. The long-lasting artistic crisis and accompanying financial problems result in a growing distance between the spouses whose love faded away. One day, they learn that Jasiek is ill and has to be operated in the city. For the boy, the trip means the long-awaited visit in a car toy shop. For the parents – a time of anxiety and parting that brings once again the reflection on their relationship.
