N/C 15+ A COACH’S DAUGHTER
2018 | Dir Lukasz Grzegorzek | 95mins | Poland
During a hot summer, Maciej Kornet and his beloved daughter Wiktoria set out on another journey across Poland. They are up for a long series of tennis tournaments. The two are inseparable; they have been training together for twelve years. Wiktoria meticulously follows her dad’s routine: a strict diet, exhausting workouts, 100% focus. She is growing tired of this and longs for some freedom. She thinks of quitting sports but is afraid to hurt her father’s feelings. This summer, Maciej’s new trainee Igor joins them on their way. Wiktoria will find the secretive boy much more interesting than tennis, and Maciej will have to watch his own dreams and his daughter’s plans go separate ways. Polish with English subtitles.

“Suprisingly refreshing indie movie from Poland. Well played by all actors. It’s great that this movie is, at the same time, light and fresh and shows characters’ emotions very well and open (and doesn’t shove them down the throat).” – Daniel Figzat, Letterboxd
