Marcin goes to Warsaw. Marcin finds a family. Marcin sleeps with the daughter. Marcin plots to kill the parents. And that’s just Marcin’s first day. Marcin is a man of few words and even fewer facial expressions, but it’s clear his intentions are logical. He begins executing his lethal plan amidst a haze of drugs, sex, and the raging Warsaw nightlife. As the plot thickens, Marcin’s fragile past comes into focus, yet his cryptic dreams shroud him in mystery. Dark, ominous, and utterly absorbing, Krzysztof Skonieczny’s HARDKOR DISKO builds volcanic tension through a dutifully calculated plot and sleek-as-midnight style. Oozing with cool, Marcin is a dangerous, sexy protagonist who commands both fear and sympathy from the viewer. A game-changing twist at the film’s midway point transforms this into an unnerving psychodrama that burrows beneath the skin. (In Polish with subtitles) – C.P.
