Storyline

The first ever Polish documentary on the issues of beauty and self-perception. It follows the winding journeys of four people who turn to plastic surgery as the last resort in their search for perfection. Aside from the obvious dilemmas, Desire for Beauty addresses numerous hidden questions, and reveals things that neither the makers nor the heroes of the film really expected. The making of the film attracted a number of renowned members of Polish social scene, and found solid support in the professional opinions of the country's top experts in various fields - from psychology to the fashion industry. However, more importantly, the film will take its spectators on a breathtaking emotional ride, and trigger a wave of discussion about one of humankind's most unquenchable desires...

A highly recommend reflection!!!
1 January 2012 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"Desire for Beauty" is an excellent reminder of the "disorder" that a large proportion of the population still lives from day to day. I could call it "a beauty disorder". The nature of the material is depressive but it's shoot with an impeccable taste and careful, like the cut of a precise surgeon. With class the "wound" and "polish tabu" are exposed to bitter sweet images and a reflection that is not only how much "humanity" has accomplished, but to what extent we've become slaves to the institutions, facilities, jobs, social trues and structures that we inhabit. Most films center on a hero or heroes scheming to overcome some obstacle or complete some quest. "Desire for Beauty" world is one of emotional pressure on which unexpected forces continuously exert pressure on the individual, shaping how he thinks and behaves. A highly recommended reflection!!!
