KEBAB & HOROSCOPE is a deadpan comedy in the vein of Aki Kaurismäki. Plunked down in a Warsaw industrial area next to a super glue factory is a carpet warehouse where no customer dares to tread. The Boss, concerned with the lack of “business energy” exhibited by his hapless employees, has hired two “marketing specialists.” Until recently, these sad sacks were an unemployed kebab shop worker and a horoscope writer. But having realized marketing is a line of work requiring no training, KEBAB & HOROSCOPE now sell their non-product to the denizens of the warehouse. Its six workers exhibit various states of eccentric ennui. Among them are an Intern with a knack for impassioned carpet description and a Cashier who takes in a sad-eyed Japanese man. Director Grzegorz Jaroszuk finds humanity in a universe where awkward people seek meaning in the crazy things they do. (In Polish with subtitles) – B.B.
