Soap Opera

Bodo Kox
Opera z mydła
Poland 2013 / 25’

This is a study of the taut emotions between two women as different as fire and ice. Martell, a student of composition, falls head over heels in love with her roommate Annie, a beautiful acting student cast in a stage play about the life of St. Hedwig and the object of a director’s affections. An accidental though dangerous event becomes a provocation in this tragic comedy with a mysterious twist.
