Portrait of a ...
8 August 2003 | by SemihSee all my reviews

Two things stand out in this film: Set design and Cinematography. Each indoor room and the stories that unfold within are like viniettes. They look like individual oil paintings. The experience of viewing the film is like walking thru a gallery. You stop in front of each picture and the images start moving, the story takes off. Use of directional lighting add to the oil-painting effect, similar to directional light from candle sources in those old paintings. Polish cinema continues to bring out innovative cinema.
