      Audience Member One of the best Polish movies I have seen within the last months. Funny and sad at the same time. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A disaster... the film was supposed to be a serious story of a family faced with a problem of cancer. In fact, it was seriously annoying. The characters were so far from being real that I couldn't believe what I was watching. The plot was getting worse and worse with each scene. Additionally, the cinematographer wanted to show off a bit too much with the use of sophisticated shots which did not serve any purpose (just as a bit of nudity which was there only for the sake of nudity). Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I o co tyle szumu? Bo temat powazny? Bo dobrze imituje rzeczywistosc? Bo calkiem odwaznie pokazali nagosc? Nijakie to wszystko... w sumie niezly dramat, ale przygnebiajacy, a przez to i nieciekawy. Niby poruszyl wazne kwestie, ale zrealizowany w jakis taki meczacy sposob. Przynajmniej scenariusz im wyszedl. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good Polish film that shows how easily a seemingly functional family unit can be brought crashing down quite serverely by one unfortunate set of circumstances. Not always the easiest to watch and at times it's more than a little bit depressing but it has that real quality that makes you want to keep watching. I thought Julia Jentsch was good as well... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member To be honest, this is not the easiest movie to watch, however it is not about joy in this case, but sth much more deeper. Death disturbing life, that's what you will find here. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member How many tragedies can one family experience at a time? This movie went over the top for me with pseudo-profound insights into "real life". Real life isn't just about being sad and miserable, I presume. Nah, I thought it both theatrical and manic, I don't know. Maybe the worst was the difficulty with getting attached to the main characters, and therefore empathize with their sad situation.
