Directed by Marcin Wrona
Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancee, Peter has been given a gift of her family's ramshackle country house in rural Poland. While inspecting the premises on the eve of the wedding, he falls into a pile of human remains. The ceremony proceeds, but strange things begin to happen. During the wild reception, Peter comes undone, and a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, takes a toehold in this present-day celebration-for a very particular reason.
Over the course of his wild wedding, Peter is taken hold of by a dark force.
Cast: Itay Tiran, Agnieszka Zulewska, Andrzej Grabowski
waste of time
A dark tale about the ghosts that unaddressed traumas leave behind. They’ll always find a way to the surface, no matter how many parties you have. Really beautiful to look at and well acted. Some well placed humor, and so sad. The school teacher in particular. I’ll be thinking about this film for a long time.
Not a bad effort here. A little scattered here and there but a decent effort. Not great but better that a lot of films in library here
I need to go to more Polish weddings.
Definitely a film that makes you think. Especially if you’re a dumb American like me who was also deprived of other countries’ histories. Looking forward to researching more about the history it eluded to!
