Andrzej and Michal are two young teenagers who come together every summer in the small tourist village Siemiany on the countryside. Their friendship has grown into years of great memories. And the boredom of the countryside and the feeling of unity amongst the boys, takes their friendship to a new level of sexually loaded intimacy.
Sexual awakening, friendship, peer pressure, first love and disappointments are a few of the issues addressed in Siemiany. The story is rather ambiguous and can be interpreted differently by different viewers. Some may argue that the movie can be considered as a “Coming Out”, as suggested by its IMDb description, which describes the friendship between Andrzej and Micha as being taken to “a new level of sexually loaded intimacy”. Having seen the film, I find that description largely inaccurate.
