The fleshy spec­ta­cle of an un­der­wear stam­pede sale strikes the droll open­ing note for this Pol­ish riff on body im­age. Ma­teusz Koscś iukiewicz stars as an ami­able head­banger in­jured dur­ing a fall from a statue. When he gets a face trans­plant, lo­cals’ re­sponses range from re­jec­tion to, ab­surdly, ex­or­cisms. The skew-whiff wit is keen, slic­ing through sen­ti­ment to anatomise the prej­u­dices be­neath. Kevin Harley
