The article concerns the results of transferring debut novel of Dorota Masłowska to silver screen, the novel which, as could be assumed, cannot be transferred successfully. The language of the book’s narrator influences strongly on the shape of the world created in the book, the story is filled with surrealistic visions, the characters are tangled in (linguistic) reality, ideologies (xenophobia and cosmopolitanism, radical ecology and “civilization of death”, liberalism and conservatism) and cultural clichés. The movie of Xawery Żuławski conducts – in my opinion – a fine adaptation, translating elements of the linguistic style into film style, and using for it such components as dialogues, acting, ways of deforming film world with specific formal endeavors as well as emphasizing fictional character of diegesis by introducing a character of Dorota Masłowska (played by her own) in the process of writing the very book and confronted directly with the invented characters.
