STRANGE CASE

POLISH TITLE: DZIWNY PRZYPADEK

“What are we here for?” – the protagonist keeps asking this question incessantly, thinking about the meaning of a human life. In a freely-flowing stream of consciousness, he goes back to the experiences that had an impact on him: love, adolescence and events from the contemporary history. A kaleidoscope of memories, thoughts and reflections is shown via rapidly changing picturesque images. Subtle brush touches and colourful patches are enhanced by restless music, sending shivers down the spine.
