What starts with boredom and sexual frustration for Edyta (Katarzyna Herman – Changes (2003) All That I Love (2009)) soon becomes despair and oppression when she enters the uncertain world of internet dating in this watchable arthouse debut from Thomas Wasilewski shot on a widescreen in and around Warsaw and scored by an original soundtrack from Leszek Mozdzer (FInding Neverland, Unfaithful).
The pickings are slim for late thirty and fortysomethings but after meeting a man who turns out to be married she decides to lie about her age and attracts Patryk, a photographer, who is drawn to her but angry when he finds out she is older. Nevertheless he pursues her and emerges as quite a unstable character with a few emotional skeletons in the cupboard of his own.
Told with a potent visual language that evokes emotional intensity and an economy of dialogue, this uncertain love story develops into an intimate two-hander with suberb production values, crisp direction and lovely creative widescreen compositions offering an unusual insight into a dating experience from a woman’s perspective.
