"Rozdroze Café" (Crossroads Café) is a movie about the changing moments in the life of a young man named Grzegorz. Robert Olech plays the role of Grzegorz, who is from a poor family, but has some ambitions to become wealthy. His family includes his mother, mildly retarded brother Bronek, and sister Dusia. They all have an influence on his life and he does his best to help them.
Grzegorz and his two friends decide to get rich by robbing a bank with the assistance of a crooked security guard who works there. As Grzegorz and his friends pursue the destructive path they have chosen, we get to see how their actions have consequences. "Rozdroze Café" builds in suspense as the story develops and you just wonder when it will explode.
The overall presentation of the story is interesting. The rock music of Kazik is interspersed throughout the entire movie, with his lyrics giving the theme of the story as a narrator would. The details he provides helps the viewer make sense of what is going on in the film. "Rozdroze Café" isn't a pretty story, but it is a compelling one full of drama, action, and tragedy.
