In a Bedroom

W sypialni
Director: Tomasz Wasilewski

Poland, Drama, 2012, 76 min, polish with english and lithuanian subtitles, N16
Edyta (Katarzyna Herman), a 40-year-old woman, runs away from her home village and arrives in Warsaw to hide from her family. She sleeps at hotels, and when her money runs out she starts dating with random men she finds on the internet. After putting them to sleep, Edyta spends nights in the homes of her hosts. This is how she meets Patryk (Tomek Tyndyk), a 35-year-old artist. The plan to sedate him collapses, and after a period of distrust, these two misfits form an uneasy bond... The feature-length debut of young Polish director Tomasz Wasilewski, “In a Bedroomˮ is a minimalist and artfully shot, intriguing and psychologically tense drama, where faces and gestures reveal more than words. Driven by an impressive central performance by Katarzyna Herman, it tells a story about attempting to build a new life on the remains of the past one.
2012 – Best Actress Award for Katarzyna Herman at the Koszalin Debut Film Festival “Young & Filmˮ (Poland).
