IFFR 2012: It Looks Pretty from a Distance
Movie: It Looks Pretty from a Distance (Anka Sasnal and Wilhelm Sasnal, Poland, 2011, 77 min.)
Date: Jan 30, 2012
(ehm.. wah? Fascinatingly weird and (un)eventful movie)
Plot: In a small village in Poland the locals live a very mediocre and cut-throat life. After dumping his mom in a care facility of sorts, one villager disappears and the village takes over his house.
Cast: Nothing special
Visuals: Some disturbing dreamy scenes, but maybe I was dozing off..
Conclusion: This movie is really fascinating: you don’t get a good grip on the story, you don’t connect with the characters, but it still kept me wanting to know how things develop. Why? I don’t know, just fascinated by the mediocre, uneventful drudgery of it all, mixed with some intense and almost useless aggressive moments. Weird..
