The Big Animal
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Jerzy Stuhr


Charming, engaging, and sharply funny, this observant comedy from director Jerzy Stuhr (working from the great Krzystof Kieslowski's original script) spins the tale of Zygmunt Sawicki (Stuhr), an unexceptional Polish bank clerk, and his wife (Anna Dymna), who one day find a camel standing in front of their house. They become increasingly attached to the creature, despite the jealous disapproval of their neighbors and local officials. A nearly universal critical smash, this warmly intelligent and insightful film also boasts gorgeous black-and-white cinematography courtesy of Academy Award nominee Pawel Edelman.
