Little Crushes takes us into the lives of three young adults looking for solidarity, love and independence. Kasia and Asia share an apartment, a car and a job: clearing out the houses of the recently deceased and selling the treasures they find at a second-hand market. Peter works in a factory screwing lids onto jars, but ends up on the street. He is still struggling with his recent divorce and a mother who isn’t exactly the most stable person on earth.
When the girls ask him to help out with their ‘two-person business’, he needs no second bidding. He quickly falls for Asia, but this disrupts the balance of the brand-new friendship between the three; it turns out Kasia is also in love…
Mumblecore from Poland? This fresh-faced auteur film may not tick all the genre boxes, but it makes a lot of nods in that direction. The natural dialogues, dry humour and delicate singer-songwriter music from Polish band Enchanted Hunters make a comparable, natural impression.
