The late Andrzej Zulawski’s final film is an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold’s reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis’s daughter Lena. Best Director, Locarno Film Festival 2015

In this frightening year of political tumult and violence in the US, few recent films get closer to revealing the roots of unrest than this unflinching slice of raw Americana, a graphic, ground-breaking portrait of Louisiana’s dirt poor and the Texan libertarian militia from Italian filmmaker Roberto Minervini.
