While tension increases in Poland in the early 1980s as a result of the struggle of the trade union movement Solidarity against the Communist regime, four 18-year-old boys decide to start a punk band in a seaside town. All That I Love, the third feature by Jacek Borcuch, concentrates on the singer of the band, the sensitive Janek. He's a young idealist who can lose himself in music, love, his dreams - until the world of adults forces him to make a choice that will have huge consequences.
Borcuch and his crew do a great job of evoking the mood of the 1980s, which in Poland is largely a time of strikes, demonstrations and tanks and soldiers in the street during the state of siege. A period in which young people were forced to grow up very fast. On the soundtrack, Polish punk hits from that time.
