An interesting drama from Poland.
Covers a few themes. On the surface it is a love story that develops
into a more violent relationship. Here we get the classic "he abuses
her and attacks her friends but she keeps going back to him" scenario.
Here it doesn't seem so unoriginal, and is almost explainable. Towards
the end there are elements of depression and co-dependency.
As the movie unfolds you can sense the darkness descending, as the
seemingly loving man becomes more and more violent. An interesting and
often scary transition.
Not great though. There is a degree of predictability to it. Some
scenes feel unnecessary. Plus, by jumping back and forth in time the
director gives away a lot of the ending.
Performances are so-so.
