How to Become a Pope? Marysia’s World

A middle-aged man and woman meet in a waiting room. He helps her take off the heavy black fur enveloping her naked body—thus begins the revealing game of seduction. Their hands reach out, extending even inside each other’s bodies, where there organs resemble plant forms, and their caresses become a more and more profound violation of the intimacy of each of the lovers. The film is the third part in the triptych Impossible Figures and Other Stories.
