Touching, realistic, magical
12 February 2018 | by anzadroznaSee all my reviews

Dawid Ogrodnik has done a wonderful job performing the main character, Mateusz, whose very personal story intersects with important socio-political transformations in Poland. Nothing was too much obvious or predictable in the narrative. A pinch of magic realism, a good portion of well acted psycho-drama, and aesthetic camera shots. For me this movie was about the need of being understood, and the power of communication that happens beyond the words. A beautiful story about life.
