My Friend the Polish Girl review - a fiction boldly reframed as fact
A faux video diary about a young woman living alone in London casts a compassionate light on migrant workers Here is a low-budget experiment in metafiction, or autofiction, with a shimmer of anxiety, shot mostly in black and white with periodic excursions into colour and animation - all about a young Polish woman living alone in a London flat, dealing with issues that are never clearly articulated. It often seems like nothing so much as a postmodern, 21st-century version of Polanski's classic Repulsion. The film itself appears to be a faux video diary by a (fictional) independent film-maker, recounting her experiences making a documentary about the life of a migrant worker in London.
