  • Glass Trap

    • Video Editor - Documentary

    *European Film Award Nominee * * * Guy Ritchie meets National Geographic, in this balls-to-the-wall look at flashy gangsters with a thing for fighting goldfish. Cash, a car and a mobile phone... as well as fish. A group of tough men from near Warsaw organize a new form of entertainment. Their customary meetings over alcohol and drugs start to include fights between aggressive aquarium fish, which are, of course, accompanied by bets for large sums of money. Such is the extent of this hobby that one of the characters hopes that his champion will contribute significantly to the purchase of a new Subaru. "It almost sounds like fiction: tough young men who drive fast cars and hold fighting matches to the death between aggressive goldfish. With its great cinematic style, Glass Trap makes you think of a "Godfather" spin off. The film has something sinister about it, but because of the fascination of goldfish also something innocent and surreal" - Catalogue IDFA Amsterdam —True/False Film Festival, Brooklyn FF, IDFA FF
