"An original and organic vision that is served up to us with all the beauty of the images." - Roberto Oggiano, Cineuropa

Love of art provides the erotic drive for two Warsaw artists in this fictionalized on-screen chronicle of their relationship that functions as a love story, performance art in the making, and a tale of rivalry. Graphic artist, poet, and avant-garde musician Wojtek Bakowski (Poniedzialek) and younger writer Zuzanna Bartoszek (Wasileska) spar relentlessly in sex and in free-form art that is manifest in adventures in style and consumerism. He's a narcissist with an established reputation, and she's a rising star with a streak of Nihilism, eerily hairless due to an autoimmune condition. Fantasies, costumes, tried-on personas, similarities and increasingly amplified differences play out as curator/filmmaker Ronduda (PERFORMER) conjures up the dimensions of their shared life and love with audacious avant-garde imagery. In Polish with English subtitles. Courtesy of Visit Films. DCP digital widescreen. (BS)
