Developed over a decade, the first feature of the animator Mariusz Wilczyński shows us well this hurtful and raw recollection. The city of Lodz has a Beckettian and autobiographical atmosphere. An industrial space, filled with smoke, strong rough lights, bizarre characters. The tragic and satirical episodes, like the death and preparation for the funeral of his mother’s corpse, inhabit the labyrinthic memory of the filmmaker.
