A country girl Kasia Solska is forced by her family to marry the man she finds unattractive. She secretly gets to university, escapes from her village to Warsaw and starts working as a babysitter there.
In the Polish countryside, everything will be OK. At least that's what the title says.
Don't expect it to be so. This film will let you in the lives of young Pawel, his terminally ill mother, his nonexistent father and someone who will change Pawel's and his own life for good... at least, that was the idea.
As in most Polish films, the approach to obscure emotions, is depicted unemotionally and, aesthetically, with mind-blowing precision. I can't spoil the film by telling you all the twists and turns it takes to immerse you into a wild ride. Buy I can assure you this: you won't be disappointed. It's a story that brutally deals with love, death, faith, alcoholism and pride.
Pawel will surprise you with the way he deals with the blows life throws at him at a very young age. He will reveal the power of faith and will to change things in his own life ad the effect this will spread as a tsunami through others' lives.
This is one of those films I really wouldn't like anyone to spoil. It's so truly original and unpredictable that this only reason would be enough to watch it. If you like the deep soul of Polish cinema (a bit tautological, since the very Polish soul is what makes them tick the way they do) this film will not disappoint... performances are on the edge of perfection; photography is superb, but the story is the one thing you may not forget in a very long time.
Give yourself a full break to watch this film. It will leave you... thinking.
