Citizen, Polish with English subtitles

"Forrest Gump meets Fellini in this enjoyably irreverent Euro farce" (Hollywood Reporter)
Need we say more? 60 years of Polish most recent history through the eyes of an ordinary man, Jan Bratek (Jerzy Stuhr), who looks back at his life while in a coma... Polish Forrest Gump? Polish Fellini in 8.5 weeks? Perhaps. But first and foremost Jerzy Stuhr's comedic parable of his generation's reality and times. Why else would a Polish comic icon decide to write, produce, direct, and act in his own movie.

Cast: Jerzy Stuhr, Maciej Stuhr, Sonia Bohosiewicz, Barbara Horowianka, Magdalena Boczarska, Janusz Gajos 


There will be no OKO screening in December due to the holiday season. Merry Christmas everyone! See you in January!


Polish Movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime

Since OKO meets only once a month, here is a list of movies in Polish, with English subtitles, available on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Documentaries are not included. If you are into that genre, there is a ton available! Enjoy!
