On a gray, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, Zhenia (Alec Utgoff), a masseur from the East, enters the lives of the wealthy residents of a gated community. Using hypnotic, almost magical techniques to get a residence permit, he starts working. The well-to-do residents in their cookie-cutter homes seemingly have it all, but they all suffer from an inner sadness, some unexplained longing. The attractive and mysterious newcomer's hands heal, and Zhenia’s eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhoods. The latest from writer/director Ma?gorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name of) and her longtime collaborator Micha? Englert is an unclassifiable meditation on class, immigration, and global warming with touches of magical realism and moments of sober beauty and subtle humor.

Coming soon to theaters and virtual cinemas.

Reviews

“A magical film. A tour-de-force…of brilliant cinematography.”

"A gently mysterious, darkly poetic tonic of the sacred and profane."

"Malgorzata Szumowska hits a career high in this alluring, atmospheric tale."

"Dreamlike and unnerving. A hypnotic viewing experience that awakens all senses through our eyes."
