Many Polish film stars shone bright on local screens during communism, but there was only one so special that you only needed say her first name for people to know whom you were referring to: Kalina (Jędrusik, for those unfamiliar with her). Even though she was an ostentatious brunette, rather than a funny blonde, she was often compared to Marilyn Monroe, whom she adored. Kalina was smart, sensual and loud-mouthed, and sparked controversy with her deep cleavages and famous carriage-ride scene in Promised Land by Andrzej Wajda, where her character performs oral sex – although that part was cut from the later edit of the film, years after its original release (1974).
The title of the upcoming feature Bo we mnie jest seks (literally translated, it means Because There Is Sex in Me, but the producers are yet to decide on the final international title) refers to one of the songs that Jędrusik sang in a famous Polish cabaret that was made for television. During the Polish Days industry event in July 2017 (held at the New Horizons International Film Festival), the film was presented under the working title Autumn Girl.
In her new feature, Katarzyna Klimkiewicz, whose feature debut was the UK drama Flying Blind [+leggi anche:

The all-Polish movie is being produced by Renata Czarnkowska-Listoś and Maria Gołoś through the company RE Studio; its previous film Icarus. The Legend of Mietek Kosz [+leggi anche:

The co-producers are Chimney Poland, DI Factory, Studio Spot, the Mazovia Warsaw Film Commission, TVP (the Polish public broadcaster) and Next Film, which will also release the film theatrically in 2021. Bo we mnie jest seks was co-financed by the Polish Film Institute, and the world sales rights are up for grabs.
