Trailer (English subtitles)

Set in a dystopian Warsaw in 2030- this story follows Adam, a soft-spoken man whose memory has been removed by the secret service. He gets a job as a janitor in a large office building then falls in love with a woman, Goria, who works in management there. During his work he finds an old radio from the 50’s and discovers that it allows him to travel to the past.

From a review :"For those expecting a straightforward or simplistic sci-fi yarn, The Man with the Magic Box might prove to be too ambitious and overlong for their liking; but for genre fans who don’t mind a little abstract thinking with their cinema, the movie will fit the bill nicely. The fluid camerawork, poetic costume design, and expert performances all come together to emphasize the strength of Kox’s tight direction and detailed script. For English-speaking audiences, the film is subtitled from the original Polish, which means that viewers will have to keep a watchful eye on the screen in order to fully immerse themselves in this bleak but creative world."
