Kaziu, the lead character in Być jak Kazimierz Deyna, had the misfortune to be born at the exact moment that the footballing legend of the film’s title was scoring the goal that would send Poland to the 1978 World Cup Finals.

It meant that his dad missed the birth, having already taken himself off to the pub to watch the national side stake their championship claim with a 1-1 draw against Poland. Even the doctors who attended his mother during childbirth were not best pleased – they wanted to be in the pub too.

And so the scene is set for the debut film of director Anna Wieczur-Bluszcz. It’s a thoughtful comedy that relies on earning the viewers’ sympathy for the protagonists, and leans far more towards an intelligent humour than to slapstick.

Starring Marcin Korcz, Przemysław Bluszcz and Gabriela Muskała, it’s on general release now.
