Atak paniki

Directed by Paweł Maślona
Poland | 2017 | 100 min | black comedy | Polish

Six stories about ordinary people put in extreme situations, which cause them to experience a panic attack. We experience a roller coaster of events: a woman meets her two exes during one night, a couple picks the worst seat on an airplane, a young girl risks having her girlfriends expose her as a porn star, a bride gives birth on her own wedding, a teenager gets stoned for the first time while a young man has to beg his weird mother to save his life’s work. A brilliant satire that cuts through society with razor-sharp humor.
