“Often moving but also disquieting and even intermittently funny, this drama unfurls a spiritual parable that is uniquely Polish but accessible to all.”~Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

Aroview: A devastating, gripping drama based on the true story of a charismatic ex-convict who is mistaken to be a priest in a devout Polish village, a community still mourning a recent tragedy.

Fearless but never cynical in its presentation of the Catholic church, and full of moral conundrums and human foibles, this is immaculately conceived in script, direction and strikingly-hued cinematography, and also blessed with a superb supporting ensemble cast behind the pivotal central performance of Bartosz Bielenia.
