AroView: An assured Polish Oscar contender about a Ukrainian immigrant who unexpectedly develops a cult-like following while working as a masseur in a gated community.
With Ukrainians being the largest foreign community in Poland, this intriguing blend of satire and surreal drama offers a glimpse into the immigrant experience. From director Malgorzata Szumowska (ELLES), and showcasing the charisma of actor Alec Utgoff.
“A funny, sad, slightly surreal and exquisitely photographed tour of a McMansion suburbia where every dream home holds a heartache, and where the ghosts of Chernobyl drift like ‘Soviet snow’.” ~AroVision on Facebook
“There’s a rich confectionery of strangeness, sadness and fear to this very absorbing film.” ~Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
