Go deep into a painter's life
3 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Actors, actresses play convincing. Dawid Ogrodnik's acting in the beginning of the movie disturbed me a bit. But then I started to explore the magic of his acting. He is really good. The movie is not good for the ones seek for big adventures. It is about calm and interesting life of a painter. I can claim that it is one of the best movies from Polish cinema which i have watched before.
