Plain Landscape with a Cradle

Arkadiusz Biedrzycki
Krajobraz nizinny z kołyską
Poland 2009 / 15’

Portrait of an alcoholic who deliberately and obstinately destroys his life. The death drive of the sixty-year-old man from a little Mazurian village is a part of a natural force – ruthless and ruled by its own laws. The film offers no comments but due to its suggestive shots, unique atmosphere and closeness with which the author accompanies the protagonist, it escapes the temptation for cheap sanctimony.
