Piotr Trzaskalski's debut film, Edi, was Poland's entry for Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards. The title character, played by Henryk Golebiowski, is a drifter who meets up with a pair of brothers (Jacek Lenartowicz and Grzegorz Stelmaszewski) that pay him to act as bodyguard for their teenage sister (Alexsandra Kisio). The sister has a lover who impregnates her. Edi claims that the baby is his; the brothers fire him and make him take the child. Edi discovers an entire new life as a single father. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"First-time writer-director Piotr Trzaskalski takes this slight celebration of the ordinary and makes it life-affirming."
‑ Michele Kenner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"When you mix social commentary about the Polish underclass with a Buddhist parable and gangster comedy, chances are that your message is going to get a little confused."
‑ Oz, eFilmCritic.com
