A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A MAN
(TYDZIE? Z ?YCIA ME?CZYZNY)

Year: 1999
Country: Poland
Run Time: 90 minutes

Where will you be a week from now? How differently will you view yourself and your loved ones than today? Renowned Polish actor Jerzy Stuhr, who turned world-class writer-director with "The List of Adulteresses" (20th CIFF, 1996), yields a tour de force both before and behind the cameras, starring in an adroit feature that covers seven days and nights in the very personal and highly-public life of a prominent Polish prosecutor. To all appearances, Adam Borowski is a success. He has just published a book summarizing his moralistic outlook; the money allows him to at last purchase a house; and his wife Anna's charity foundation for unwed mothers is being honored. Even the choral group to which he belongs is preparing for a trip to the prestigious Edinburgh Festival. Good thing nobody knows about Adam's mistress. His tax-dodging accountant. A questionable adoption. His political vendettas that threaten Anna Borowski's life's work. Good thing nobody knows. Well, almost nobody... As Adam brings judgment upon a variety of lawbreakers, fate is preparing a series of blows that expose his monumental inner flaws and bring the prosecutor face to face with the evidence of his own perfidy. The verdict is clear: A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A MAN will stay with you 24/7. (In Polish with English subtitles.)
