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

Wonderful directed film
23 April 2009 | by (GUA) – See all my reviews

Just Wonderful, in two words, it's an almost non-spoked drama film, that achieves immerse the audience into the story by the brilliant playing of the lead role by Artur Steranko, main character it's a loneliness guy who find company looking through the window at the apartment across side yard, he creates a love story for himself involving Anna (girl's apartment) with whom he has been involved in a criminal act been innocent

Every scene has been very well directing and played, when i saw it i was involved easily in the plot, audio track is very good, scenery and locations were chosen carefully to develop characters and plot, i haven't followed Skolimowski's work but after this film i'm impatient to see new films from him
