Daily Living Drives School Teacher Crazy, November 12, 2004
"The Day of Wacko" (2002; or "Dzien Swira") is a film about a school teacher named Adas (as played by Marek Kondrat) that goes crazy from his daily living. His neighbors annoy him, his students do not respect him, he feels his mother controls him, the people in the store push him, and just living is stressful for him. This is a "dark comedy," filled with a lot of crude humor.
The story is shown from the viewpoint of Adas, as he narrates his thoughts throughout the day, with some dialogue with the people he interacts with. The viewers see how he lives, eats, sleeps, bathes, goes to bathroom, and goes about his day. "The Day of Wacko" is very funny at times, but some parts, as going to bathroom and bathing, may be a bit much for some. Although the story of someone loosing his mind is sad, this film puts a comic twist on it, albeit doused with crude humor.
"The Day of Wacko" is a 90 minute Polish film directed by Marek Koterski. This DVD has English subtitles to help understand the film, if you are not fluent in Polish. Overall, this is not a film for kids due to the language and crude content.
