W imie... Trailer
Winner of the 2013 Berlinale Best Feature Teddy, Szumowska presents a priest “transferred” to small-village Poland to oversee a boys’ home for delinquents. The charismatic priest begins life anew, impressing the boys and charming the local ladies, but when a young man who looks uncannily like a teenage Jesus enters the picture, old “demons” return. Well scripted, beautifully shot and palpably felt provincial insularity make the film enjoyable to watch, but an ambiguous ending muddles any message.
W imie... (Im Names des…) | Directed by Malgorzata Szumowska (Poland, 2013) with Andrzej Chyra, Mateusz Mosciukiewicz, Lukasz Simlat. Starts May 15
