The story is about a film director named Adas (Cezary Pazura) told through personal reflections and a review of his own life. Although Adas has brief moments of success, he always comes in second and this infuriates him. His ranting self-talk, which narrates the movie, is hilarious. Pazura’s role in “Nothing Funny” is nothing short of great acting; we see the man’s deep sadness, reflected in his daydreams of a better life, and in his neurotic outbursts when his life overwhelms him. Poland, 85 min.
