Storyline

This is the story of three characters: Tomek and Jacek are brothers, and Magda is their neighbour. Each of them is in their own way lonely and alienated. Magda, who likes sitting in her wardrobe, isolates herself from the outside world and even attempts suicide. Tomek's alienation is caused by his neurological disease, and Jacek contacts the world mainly via the Internet. Their lives change unexpectedly when Jacek has a business meeting and asks Magda to take care of his autistic brother. Written by Anonymous

Deep and distorted with an excellent soundtrack.
22 October 2013 | by (Seattle Washington) – See all my reviews

I recently had the pleasure to watch this movie at the Polish Film Festival here in Seattle. I think a lot was lost in the translation as I don't speak Polish but even that was not really a detriment. I can say that this movie was really original in topic and that I was thrown for a loop when I finally put it together. Its happy, sad, ironic and disjointed and really revolves around Jacek's care of his brother Tomek whose bizarre behavior has you wondering why anyone would. Its a touching movie, which even now I admit I didn't totally get because I think each viewing will open something new that I missed before. Highly recommended and the soundtrack is crazy good from what I heard. If it makes it to Itunes, I am all over it. Good job. I didn't see it coming.
