An overambitious Bergman-wannabe attempt from Barczyk

Throughout the film one has the feeling that "Przemiany" wants to be Bergman's "Cries and Whispers" but fails miserably. The further it goes the greater the disappointment. Barczyk's interesting debut `Patrze na Ciebie Marysiu ` (I'm Looking at You, Mary) raised hopes for a new talent in Polish cinema. In `Przemiany' Barczyk presents an over-ambitious script which he fails to execute. The characters are never properly developed to create any emotional link for the viewer. Their behaviour is very Scandinavian - sharp, straight to the point, in my view completely unnatural for Poles. This adds to the overall artificiality of the film, which simply becomes grotesque by the end and looses all of its emotional weight. It takes a Bergman to create a true Bergman film.
