FUGA / Fugue

FUGA / Fugue

Alicja (Gabriela Muskała) is diagnosed with dissociative fugue, a condition that has made her forget her identity. When her family finds her, she learns that she has a husband and a five-year-old son. Initially, she wants to abandon them as soon as possible, but she becomes intrigued by the life she left behind. Fugue plays out a bit like a horror flick, but the subtle influences are combined into a coherent whole. Smoczyńska and Muskała, who also wrote the script, have moulded an intriguing character, a metaphor for many women in modern-day Poland, who are trying to free themselves from their traditional social roles. (Ola Salwa, Cineuropa)
