Smarten Your Brain
23 March 2013 | by sebastianmarciniecSee all my reviews

"Salto" tells the story of a man running away from his previous life ,so he goes to this town where weird stuff is happening .That's all you need to know. The IMDb synopsis practically spills out the whole plot so better not read it .

I love this film . The main actor Zbigniew Cybulski was often called the polish Marlon Brando for his perfect acting and cool way of being .Other than great acting the film has also a very specific and original style of directing. It's like mixing ""Simon of the Desert" with "Rebel Without A Cause". There is a ball scene in this movie that I would consider one of the best scenes in the history of cinema - where all the people talking to each other have nothing to say and furthermore all of them talk gibberish . It's like watching Sims origins. Very surrealistic and deep .
