To Kill A Beaver
dir. Jan Jakub Kolski
cast: Eryk Lubos, Agnieszka Pawelkiewicz, Alexandra Michael, Marek Kasprzyk

As BIFF 2011 selection My Flesh My Blood showed, there are few more intensely physical actors in Europe than Poland's Eryk Lubos. Revered by his peers at home, his talents were recognised on a prestigious international stage when he won Best Actor at Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic last summer for his performance as an ice-cold hitman in taut two-hander To Kill A Beaver. Hiding out in his rural safe-house while awaiting his next job, Lubos's 'Eryk' is startled to find that a teenaged runaway (Agnieszka Pawelkiewicz) has moved in during his absence. Complications ensue - all the way up to a spectacularly violent finale. It feels ripe for a Hollywood remake noted Hollywood Reporter reviewer Stephen Dalton, singling out "taut style and strong plot" for particular praise.
