Hired to restore the art collection of a centuries-old religious order, a chain-smoking painter and amateur aromachologist (Grazyna Blecka-Kolska) arrives at a rural monastery with her precocious five-year-old daughter, who begins to follow the caretaker around like a gosling. Their presence provokes the holy men—one to confront his spiritual commitment, another to reconnect with his love of movies. Director Jan Jakub Kolski blends magical realism with elements of the mystery genre as the monks encounter the jasmine-scented ghost of a medieval woman. His Felliniesque eccentrics include a lovelorn beautician, a visiting film star, a levitating monk, and a grizzled saint, but the heart of the movie is soulful Janusz Gajos as the put-upon caretaker. In this gorgeous fable the spiritual and the erotic balance like notes in a fine perfume. In Polish with subtitles. 107 min.
