Drama, Thriller
In a mountainous region of Poland, a part-time English teacher finds her two dogs have been killed and saves their remains in hope of cloning them someday. Soon human corpses begin turning up as well, signaling what director Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, The Secret Garden) calls an "anarchistic, feminist crime story with elements of black comedy." Noirish imagery contributes to the atmosphere, and sweeping camera movements suggest there's more to the story than meets the eye. But the oddball characters and twisty narrative seem almost surrealistically implausible, and the utopian conclusion, apparently a response to right-wing politics in Poland, seemed nutty to me. In Polish with subtitles.
