Storyline

The end of summer. A house by the lake outside the city. In one of the rooms, Marta and her husband, Tadeusz, who have a sexless and unhappy marriage go to bed. Trains passing by are heard from a distance. Then someone knocks on the glass door. The man at the door introduces himself, Snaut as the fiancé of her sister Wanda. They were expecting him the next day. He is thirty-five years old, behind him broken marriage, clinical depression, addiction to psychotropics and loss of work at the ground control of "Okecie" flights. He comes to his girlfriend's home to ask her mother for her daughter's hand. Already during the first conversation there is a conflict between him and Wanda's mother, an overbearing woman and full of worries about her daughter's fate. The topic of unpleasant conversation is his past. Written by lament

An overambitious Bergman-wannabe attempt from Barczyk
30 December 2003 | by roughskiSee all my reviews

Throughout the film one has the feeling that "Przemiany" wants to be Bergman's "Cries and Whispers" but fails miserably. The further it goes the greater the disappointment. Barczyk's interesting debut `Patrze na Ciebie Marysiu ` (I'm Looking at You, Mary) raised hopes for a new talent in Polish cinema. In `Przemiany' Barczyk presents an over-ambitious script which he fails to execute. The characters are never properly developed to create any emotional link for the viewer. Their behaviour is very Scandinavian - sharp, straight to the point, in my view completely unnatural for Poles. This adds to the overall artificiality of the film, which simply becomes grotesque by the end and looses all of its emotional weight. It takes a Bergman to create a true Bergman film.
