Jéz Jerzy (George the Hedgehog)SXFantastic
D: Wojtek Wawszczyk, Kuba Tarkowski, Tomek Lesniak; with Borys Szyc, Maria Peszek, Maciej Malenczuk, Sokól, Misiek Koterski
The well-meaning slacker Jéz Jerzy (Szyc) passes his hedgehog days chasing skirts, skateboarding, and generally making merry. Unfit for marriage, he and his childhood love, Yola (Peszek), carry on an affair behind her effeminate husband's back. Life would be easy, if not for a scorned neo-Nazi who also loves Yola. Things escalate when two mad scientists clone a rude, flatulent version of Jéz Jerzy that they use to win over the hearts of Poland's youth. They then hire the love-sick Nazi to kill the real Jéz Jerzy. This film adaptation of Rafal Skarzycki (screenwriter) and Lesniak's (co-director) comic series lovingly teases its primary audience, as it criticizes pop culture and social media's appreciation of the mundane, while it simultaneously delivers its own funny but lowbrow love story complete with political commentary and no fewer than 100 fart jokes.
