| slow, not a thriller
This film is currently traveling in North America, being shown at the Polish Film Festival in Chicago, and also in the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Film Festival.

Billed as a "thriller", the story line seemed similar to Andrej Wajda's "Man of Marble", in which a film student needs to make a film in order to graduate, picks a subject, and while digging info, finds out that there is a lot more, buried in layers and layers of covered up history.

This one is not even close. Cannot reveal anything about the story, to stick to IMDb guidelines, so suffice to say that in comparison with "Man of Marble", this one is much weaker in narrative, storyline, suspense, historical references. It is rather slow, and in some moments, I could have slept: that is what happens when psychiatry is the subject of a motion picture.

From a cinematographic point of view, it is well photographed, and professionally produced. But there are signs it is a bit "forced": take for example the couple of scenes with rain pouring. There is one at the beginning, and fittingly, there is one at the end. The movie starts and ends with rain, and sunny in the rest of the film. But the end scene, seemed artificial, almost created symbolically.
