Storyline

An arrogant medical man discovers there's more to his new patient than he imagined in this drama from Polish filmmaker Feliks Falk. Dr. Konstanty Grot (Borys Szyc) is an ambitious young doctor who is determined to make a name for himself, to the point that his wife often accuses him of being more interested in his career than in her. Grot believes that he can earn the respect of his peers by successfully treating a supposedly incurable patient, and he believes he may have found a likely candidate in Pawel Plocki (Grzegorz Wolf), a mental patient who can barely function. Grot signs Plocki out of the mental hospital where he's been treated for years and moves him into his own home; in time, Plocki shows genuine improvement, and Grot thinks he?s beaten the state medical establishment at their own game. But that?s before Grot learns some secrets about his patient that cast his condition in a new and disturbing light. Written by Anonymous

slow, not a thriller
10 November 2009 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

This film is currently traveling in North America, being shown at the Polish Film Festival in Chicago, and also in the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Film Festival.

Billed as a "thriller", the story line seemed similar to Andrej Wajda's "Man of Marble", in which a film student needs to make a film in order to graduate, picks a subject, and while digging info, finds out that there is a lot more, buried in layers and layers of covered up history.

This one is not even close. Cannot reveal anything about the story, to stick to IMDb guidelines, so suffice to say that in comparison with "Man of Marble", this one is much weaker in narrative, storyline, suspense, historical references. It is rather slow, and in some moments, I could have slept: that is what happens when psychiatry is the subject of a motion picture.

From a cinematographic point of view, it is well photographed, and professionally produced. But there are signs it is a bit "forced": take for example the couple of scenes with rain pouring. There is one at the beginning, and fittingly, there is one at the end. The movie starts and ends with rain, and sunny in the rest of the film. But the end scene, seemed artificial, almost created symbolically.
