dir. Greg Zgliński

The marriage of Nick and Anna undergoes a crisis, so the couple decides to leave for Switzerland. He wants to get to know the local cuisine and bring culinary inspirations into his own restaurant, while she plans to spend 6 months on writing a book. When their car hits a sheep, the couple begins to experience odd visions: none of them knows whether it is just their own or partner’s imagination, or perhaps it is the reality?
“Animals” is a new film by Greg Zgliński, who also created the “Wymyk” and “Cała zima bez ognia”. It was quite a sensation at this year’s edition of Berlinale.
The movie was acclaimed very well by critics while the form was a real surprise to all, as it differed much from the previous films made by the director. This one, when it comes to the ambiance, resembled the “Mulholland Drive” by David Lynch, being a mysterious, somewhere in between the dream and reality. “I was interested in this burred borderline between the fantasy and reality for a long time. Mystery is the key. I like to think of “Animals” as an interactive piece. The one which invites the viewer to complete the history on the screen with his own imagination” – says Zgliński interviewed by onet.pl.
“It is one of the greatest surprises in this year’s program” – says Variety Guy Lodge, the reviewer who listed the Zgliński’s movie among ten best premiers at Berlinale 2017. You just can’t miss it!
