A loud yet silent masterpiece!
15 December 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Beautiful music, poetry and excellence in black and white photography. All in one motion picture telling the story of "Papuszka". A true biographical movie that puts us as close as just besides her, allowing us and giving enough time to understand.

The movie tells her journey. Emotional, both tragic and beautiful moments, all did affect me very much. After watching the movie those are still in my heart like a drug, a mix of compassion, beauty and logic affecting my brain.

I hope the music will or already is released separately as I became addicted to it when the movie ended and the music stopped... I just want more!

Historically, it reminds us that not only Jews were victims of holocaust, which can be easily forgotten with amount of films focusing on Jew victims. There were many other ethnic groups, but since this movie mostly focuses on telling her life not the holocaust itself, we only get a glimpse on Gypsy's holocaust.

Must see for any movie lover. I give it 10 out of 10, because in my opinion this is a masterpiece that is a fine addition in the history of Polish cinema (I hope not only Polish).
