“I NEVER CRY, written and directed by Piotr Domalewski, presented in the New Directors section at the San Sebastián Film Festival, is a moving drama, filled with black humour and empathy, that would make Ken Loach proud. Domalewski’s debut, SILENT NIGHT, won all of the top Polish awards, including the Golden Lions at the Polish Film Festival in Gdynia and the Polish Eagles [Polish film awards].” (www.cineuropa.org)
