The titular, metaphorical carousel, on which the characters in Robert Wichrowski’s new film are spinning, has little to do with a carefree amusement park attraction. The main protagonists of the story are only thirty when they must face some of the most difficult decisions of their lives. Rafał, Magda, Piotr and Natalia must decide what is truly important for them, and how much they are willing to sacrifice to achieve it. When two best friends fall in love with the same girl, their relation is put to a difficult test. Their friendship is measured against the love of a woman. Lies, used as a ‘lesser evil’, become a false escape. The story told by Robert Wichrowski, the film’s director, is a journey through human soul. It guides viewers through a complex world of the characters’ emotions, instead of providing easy answers. The protagonists are disillusioned with a world where human relations are limited to the use of communicators, social media and mobile phones. The film is a leading role debut for young actors depicting the main characters – Mikołaj Roznerski, Mateusz Janicki, Karolina Kominek and Maria Pawłowska. Małgorzata Zajączkowska, Ireneusz Czop and Aleksandra Mikołajczak appear in supporting roles. The visual aspect also plays a significant part in the film. The camera led by Adam Bajerski, a cinematographer whose work includes ‘Tricks’ and ‘Imagine’, closely follows the characters and their emotions. The movie contains music composed by Mikołaj Bugajak, a.k.a. Noon, a leading young Polish producer. The soundtrack collects songs by alternative bands and musicians, including Fern, Hatti Vatti, Random Trip, Ewa Abart and Marek Dyjak. This is the music of the generation which came into adulthood in the XXI century.
