Storyline

A worker, Leon, is deeply in love with Anna. (None of them are really young). During night time Leon will enter an open window and merely be sitting and looking at the sleeping Anna. He may also paint her toenails with nail polish. - Since he may also in daytime use different ways of being secretly near her, he is near in the barn, when another man binds her and rapes her. But here Leon makes a great mistake. He leaves the barn immediately after the rapist - almost as if they were together. Leon is the only one Anna could recognize. In the court he gives primitive answers. Why did he do it? "Love." He gets a 5-year prison sentence. - In a pause, maybe in an appellate court, Anna says to Leon, that she does not believe that he did it. Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

The return of director Jerzy Skolimowski
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival. After a long absence from film noted Polish filmmaker Jerzt Skolimowski was coaxed back into film-making to to write and direct a small feature film which became this film Four Nights with Anna. Skolimowski was at the screening and explained that a producer wanted him involved in a major film as a director but wanted him first to direct a smaller film to show that he was still a competent filmmaker. Co-written with his wife Eva Piaskowska this film is set in northern Poland in a bleak environment of a small northern town and is the story of Leon (Artur Steranko) who works for a hospital crematorium and lives on the hospital grounds with his ailing grandmother. Across from their house is the nurses quarters where Anna (Kinga Preis) lives. Leon is a timid bachelor with a menial job and a criminal history who is infatuated with Anna. This is a dark and dark-looking drama with little dialog and an almost Hitchcock-like suspense but not a heavy suspense prevailing throughout the film. It's a small film but skillfully executed and a wonderful performance by relative unknown Steranko in the lead role. I would give this a 7.0 out of 10.
