a film by Malgorzata Szumowska. Starts August 26th at the fsk. In Polish with German subtitles.
A sensitive study of the isolation felt particularly by women in uniformly sterile suburbia.
One foggy morning, a mysterious figure appears in the suburbs of a large eastern European city and offers his services as a masseur. He’s an attractive man from the authentic, exotic East, and he has a gift: his hands can heal, and his eyes peer into the souls of lonely women. To them, his Ukrainian accent sounds like a song from the olden days, like a peaceful melody from their childhood, when the world was still a safe place. Zhenia, as he is called, changes their lives.
