Ania and Kasia are at the end of their schooling as women's hairdressers. They're now doing an internship at a salon in the most disparaged district of Krakow, Nowa Huta, which was built in the received Stalinist style near a steel plant at the beginning of the 1950s. Both Ania and Kasia have complicated relationships with their parents—relationships that are not exactly simplified as the girls approach adulthood.
An authentic, endearing, small, beautifully formed feature debut with this bittersweet snapshot of frustrated Polish youth.
Waves is a compelling and accomplished piece of work, and is indicative that Zariczny will be a talent to watch closely over the coming years.
"A distinct whiff of Mike Leigh running through Waves..."
