Poland, 1990. The winds of change are blowing in Poland. The first euphoric year of freedom, but also of uncertainty for the future. Four apparently happy women of different ages decide it's time to change their lives, fight for their happiness and fulfill their desires. Agata is a young mother, trapped in an unhappy marriage, who seeks refuge in another, impossible relationship. Renata is an older teacher fascinated with her neighbor Marzena - a lonely former local beauty queen, whose husband works in Germany. Marzena's sister Iza is a headmistress in love with the father of one of her students.
I am sure this is not the easiest movie for many,but I find it brutally expressive, overwhelming and especially original. I don't know the fancy words for a review but I can tell you, most of the movie I will probably remember for a very, very long time.
I love the very Eastern European picture and most of the characters - the play of the school director is so powerful that she is almost iconic.
This is pure realistic art against the grain, shallow and mediocre entertainment going on in cinemas.
