Film description

With crude, awkward Leon and silent, uninteresting Anna, the director created a couple experiencing a love that is loftily unfulfilled, almost tragic.

The construction of frames in Four Nights with Anna is reminiscent of Kim Ki-duk's films, for instance Empty Houses. Elements of the scenography make one think about naive painters, and the landscape, if photographed in black and white, could be an outdoor location for Béla Tarr's films. Skolimowski managed to unite these cultural references with extraordinary, sophisticated precision. The world constructed by the camera matches the characters and the audience's moods perfectly well. Details - a spider on a tie, a crevice on a floor, a clock on a wall - turn out to be the vastest metaphors, the fate's message, a missing answer. The world is holding on and the director is testing its resistance in front of the spectators' eyes.
