It is 1990, the first euphoric year of freedom in Poland, and four seemingly happy women decide it’s time to change their lives and fulfill their desires: a young mother trapped in an unhappy marriage who seeks refuge in another, impossible relationship; an older teacher fascinated with her neighbor; an aerobics instructor who herself is dreaming of a career in modelling; and a headmistress in love with the father of one of her students. This compassionate portrayal of unrequited love was rightfully awarded Best Script at this year’s Berlinale. A bonus: Its distinctive Romanian visual touch is courtesy of the Romanian New Wave cinematographer Oleg Mutu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu).

Presented in the framework of the Creative Freedom through Cinema program.
