Interesting drama
4 March 2015 | by grantssSee all my reviews

An interesting drama from Poland.

Covers a few themes. On the surface it is a love story that develops into a more violent relationship. Here we get the classic "he abuses her and attacks her friends but she keeps going back to him" scenario. Here it doesn't seem so unoriginal, and is almost explainable. Towards the end there are elements of depression and co-dependency.

As the movie unfolds you can sense the darkness descending, as the seemingly loving man becomes more and more violent. An interesting and often scary transition.

Not great though. There is a degree of predictability to it. Some scenes feel unnecessary. Plus, by jumping back and forth in time the director gives away a lot of the ending.

Performances are so-so.
