"…tales of love and death. These classical themes are treated with the graveness of an adult and yet with the curiosity of a child. His somewhat disturbing films bear witness of a quest for Truth – dark as it may be.
In his probing of the human soul and its profound reasons, the scenery or the setting reflects the characters’ state of mind, while the refined framing, depth of field, juxtaposition of images and camera movements suggest a parallel reality, close to the realm of dreams…"
M. Berthelius – film critic


Play (2018) | Review by Paulina Bukowska (excerpt)
"The film's protagonist [MARIUSZ WORONOWICZ], suffering from a childhood trauma, meets his past self in order to banish the overwhelming feeling of guilt that haunts him. When he was 10 years old he was too scared to protect his mother [JOANNA KULIG], and as a result, he witnessed something that changed his life forever.
The man lives in between past and present. The memories of the day the tragedy happened keep coming back to him. Sometimes they are so distorted that it's impossible to tell what is real and what is a product of his imagination. In these visions he plays a psychopathic game with his past self, recollecting step by step the following events and details. Facing his own demons is a way to set himself free and discover who he really is..."
