Sample text

Noor’s more dramatic response to my ‘directions’ further emphasized just how inappropriate such a film-making approach was to this particular project. Quite quickly Noor began to resent being asked to do certain things for the camera. He clearly felt somewhat humiliated and mistrustful of the representation that was being formed of him. This sense of having no control over the film-making process led to Noor becoming quite angry at times and to his closing up to the camera. Understandably he cut short the filming we were able to do with him before I’d had the chance to direct all the sequences involving him that I had planned.

It focuses upon the daily struggle against poverty of a young family living in the Polish city of Lodz. The film is situated for the most part in the tiny flat that the family shares. Through detailed and careful observation the film gradually and powerfully communicates the loving relationships within the family, their daily routines of survival and the manner in which the family manage to live happily in this small space with little money and with the parents working long hours. The film is so intimate and detailed that an audience has the feeling they are in the room with the family and begins to form a strong sense of the individual personalities of each of the characters, without them having to verbally explain themselves and their situation to the film-makers.

The film does not so much communicate information, as evoke the experiences that the family is going through. Without a voice-over to impose a particular interpretation there remains an ambiguity and complexity to the interactions and events taking place, that invites a viewer into imagining how he/she might feel and react if placed in such situations. Something of the individual personalities of the family’s members comes through. The audience is able to get to know them a little, to form some kind of attachment to them and to therefore empathize with them.
