The latest film by Krzysztof Krauze and Joanna Krauze is a story of guilt and redemption. Using improvisational techniques developed by the renowned film director Mike Leigh, the directors worked with the cast for months and have created incredibly personal and recognisable characters.
Seemingly an ordinary family - a husband, a wife, children and a mother-in-law - live in a flat overlooking, bathed in sunlight, Saviour Square. People just like us and their true story, in which the maliciousness of fate intertwines with coincidence, fruitless intentions and the fragile nature of a human being.
A heartbreaking picture of human needs, desires, a tale about people, their loneliness among others and their need for a close relationship. This is also a story about love in all its manifestations.
The jury at the Polish Film Awards said that the film contained superb understanding of human nature, excellent production, flawless acting, and a cinematographer with a perfect grasp of the movie’s message, and also awarded them the Best Film, Director and Actress awards.
