You Have No Idea How Much I Love You

Paweł Łoziński
Nawet nie wiesz, jak bardzo cię kocham
Polska 2016 / 76’

Words create our world, in particular our inner world. Therefore, when a mother and daughter visit a psychotherapist to talk about their feelings, the doctor asks them to think of words that have an equivalent meaning but are less blunt. The words in this film are a double-edged sword that injure both the speaker and the person they are speaking to. This can already be seen in the title, which, on the one hand, is a confession of love, and, on the other, emotional blackmail intended to produce a sense of guilt in the recipient. Moreover, these words are spoken by the mother, who has been unable to find a common language with her twentysomething daughter for quite some time. They are learning to do this yet again under the watchful eye of a professor in Krakow. The viewer becomes an unwitting witness to this painful process, repeatedly undermining its meaning and effectiveness. "After Father and Son, I needed proof that there existed a kind of conversation that made it easier for people to live together or easier for each of them to live separately," says the director, whose film-an award winner at the Krakow Film Festival-works in much the same way as successful psychotherapy.
