Delirium

Delirium
Director: Ihor Podolchak

Ukraine, Czech Republic, Drama, thriller, 2013, 96 min, ukrainian with english and lithuanian subtitles, N-18
A family asks a young psychiatrist to betheir guest for a while to untangle the circumstances of their father’s illness. He’s developed a suicidal fixation for ropes and knots among other things. While deeply involved in analyzing the patient’s delirium, the doctor begins to lose track of what is taking place. The task of “how to help” is twisted into “who am I - doctor or patient? Chance guest, member of this suffering family, or a catholic priest who has dreamed this all up?” In order to get a handle on it all, it’s best to start from the beginning, but why do things keep shifting, changing?.. Ihor Padolchak‘s film „Delirium” - like an funeral procession moving along it‘s path from church to cemetery, leading us into a place where time has lost its linearity, looping through the odd images thrown off by a distorted reality. Film based of the novel “Inductor“ by the ukrainian writer and journalist Dmytro Belyanskyi.
