Tricks

Explores a girl’s dreams of life beyond her sleepy Polish town

Slight but sweet, Andrzej Jakimowski’s slip of a comedy explores a girl’s dreams of life beyond her sleepy Polish town and her kid bro’s attempts to “trick” a stranger into believing he’s the lad’s long-lost dad. Little happens, slowly, but easy charm and immersive mood-control offset its turgidity and twee tendencies.
