Director Robert Glinski details the bleakness of life in a dead-end industrial town with this Polish drama about a young girl's rebellion and gradual degradation. Living with her unhappy parents in a grimy housing project, Tereska (Aleksandra Gietner) dreams of a career in fashion design, but two companions, a hard-bitten schoolmate and a wheelchair-bound pedophile, introduce her to smoking, alcohol, lies, and sex. The explosive family arguments come close to parodying kitchen-sink realism, and Glinski's dissection of the girl's psychological malaise isn't entirely convincing. But Gietner, sullen and passive, holds the film together with her curiosity and simmering anger. 89 min.
