The Getaway King


Mateusz Rakowicz

2021, 1 h 40 min

Together with his gang, Najmro robs Pewex shops in order to live a colourful life in the times when everything is grey and forbidden. He loves freedom and good fun more than anything else. Unexpectedly, a woman crosses his path, stealing his heart. He decides to change for her. But can he really?

An action comedy about the king of thieves and getaways. Inspired by true events from the life of Zdzisław Najmrodzki who ridiculed the authorities by slipping away from law enforcement twenty-nine times. Women loved him, while men admired him. In the 1970s and 80s all of Poland followed Najmrodzki’s daring stunts.

The film is the director’s feature-length debut.
