Polish language film with sub-titles. Part of the season of International films selected and supported by the BFI.
This dark, satirical tragicomedy won the Jury Grand Prix at the Berlin International Film Festival.
After a work accident, a builder becomes the first person in Poland to undergo a (not altogether successful) face transplant, which leads to all sorts of identity issues.
Director Malgorzata Szumowska describes the film as “a fairytale for adults” – the lead is her real-life husband.
