One of the most awaited Polish films of the last couple of years – an adaptation of the bestseller by Dorota Masłowska released in many countries all over the world (“Wojna polsko-ruska”, “Schneeweiß und Russenrot”).

SNOW WHITE AND RUSSIAN RED is an adrenaline filled, uncompromising story of the uncontrollable power  of imagination of young people  and their hunger for emotions and new experiences! It’s a film telling a story of greedy love that is capable of totally changing everyday lives.

Yobbo's relationship with Magda doesn’t work, as their love is a continuous fight. Full of anger and looking for a recipe for love, Yobbo rides through a few days of his life with dizzy speed. During this experience extraordinary women stand in his way: Angela – full of crazy dreams sensitive virgin, Nata – an old friend and a lover of sniffing instant soup powder and… Dorota  – a teenager in whose head the entire film happens.

Dorota Masłowska a Polish writer and journalist who is a phenomenon in her native Poland. She wrote her first novel - the bestselling Wojna polsko – ruska pod flaga bialo – czerwona (English title: Snow White and Russian Red) - at the age of 18. Largely controversial, the book was praised by many intellectuals as innovative and fresh. A notable example of post-modernist literature, her book became a best-seller in Poland and won Masłowska several notable awards as well as general support among the critics. It was almost immediately translated into several languages, including French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian, English, Hungarian and Czech.
