Tanczacy jastrzab

Grzegorz Królikiewicz Poland, 1977

Aquieu's rating of the film The Dancing Hawk

Chronicling the rise to power of a small village boy this film is a satire that is very mercenary and uncompromising in its approach - perfectly mirroring the opportunism and reckless abandon shown by a governmental ladder that had lost touch with the heart of its people in favour of "far-sighted" goals. The film also boasts some of the most wildly creative camera work I've ever seen.
