In addition to grabbing a handful of Polish film awards, director Piotr Trzaskalski's film Edi was the Winner of the Don Quixote Award, FIPRESCI Prize of the Forum of New Cinema ("for its humanity and the warmth showing the life of a homeless man fighting for his dignity, but still caring for people around him"), and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury - all at 2002's Berlin International Film Festival. Further thoughts come from the web site Neil Young's Film Lounge: "Edi takes its time to establish its characters within vividly realised environments - the feral city and the seductively lyrical countryside - so that when the rather melodramatic story kicks in we're aware that what might seem to be implausible developments are in fact elements in a careful and complex character study. As Golebiewski's powerfully persuasive performance takes centre stage, the plot moves inexorably towards Edi's climactic moral decision - a soberingly dignified act of unexpectedly moving self-sacrifice and redemption."
