A Police thriller that does a 180, 8 September 2006
Author: benl-4 from Toronto, Canada

Palimpsest is a Polish psychological study that starts as a police detective story and ends up being something very different. That's all I'm going to say, except the script was intriguing and the cast gave a great performance. Palimpsest is the kind of film that many people will want to see again to look for clues and details.

I wish the sound mix had been a bit lower though as it was a bit jarring at times, especially since I almost dozed off because I'd had a long day. I saw Palimpsest at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the director's comments after the screening about how the screenplay changed during development and how he hates unnecessary dialog were interesting.
