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
Bad, cheap foreign film. Nothing much happens and the trailer is much better than the film itself. The father of the bride insisting his guests remain at the wedding after the groom get possessed is stupidly unrealistic and repetitive. A boring take on Jewish horror.
Such a different movie. Love it.
(*slightly spoilery*) Starts with a nice build to an interesting unique concept, but shifts gears midway and ends up winding down to a sorta anti-climax, that while subverting Hollywood norms, is also kinda a let down. The style and performances are top notch though, it just didn't live up to it's promise.
not enough breadcrumbs....
interesting but pointless
