Life Must Go On

86 minutes 2015

Bartek (Tomasz Kot) is getting on in years but hasn't gotten on as an actor: he performs clown comedy for schoolkids, emcees at the local disco, and warms up the crowd for tapings of Dancing With the Stars. When he's diagnosed with lung cancer and given three months to live, he begins to reassess his life, making contact with his ex-wife, his resentful daughter, and an old lover even as his oblivious bosses on the TV show tap him to replace the current on-air host. Maciej Migas, directing a clever script by Cezary Harasimowicz, gets some solid laughs from Bartek's devil-may-care attitude, communicated mainly through a strong selection of rock tunes on the soundtrack. The black comedy underlying all this is that the hero's emotional encounters with the women in his life only confirm how badly he's squandered his life. In Polish with subtitles.
