Walkover

A young man arrives by train in a city without a name to box there. However, he does not really qualify for the competition. He learns from a female former colleague from university to avoid easy conquests in both boxing and real-life.

WALKOVER is remarkable for Skolimowski's rugged, charismatic incarnation of a type of anti-hero, detached from history and socialist responsibility, that was virtually unprecedented in Polish cinema. Equally remarkable is the film's dynamic long-take style (there are only 29 shots in the entire film), centered on sustained, rapid tracking shots that capture the protagonist's restless energy.
