RUBEN ÖSTLUND

Ruben Östlund | Sweden, Denmark | 2017 | 142 min. O.V. English and Swedish with English and Spanish subtitles

The life between the ‘80s and the 2000s of the Polish surrealist painter Zdzisław Beksiński, known for his disturbing post-apocalyptic Giger-style works, his sense of humour and his mania for photographing and recording everything. And his relationship with his son Tomek, translator of Monty Python and A DJ, always on the verge of exploding. A family portrait, eccentric like its protagonists –under the care of Zosia, the mother, in the grey block of communist apartments-, where the comical is mingled with the dreadful final destiny of Beksiński, a fascinating personality that won Andrzej Seweryn the Best Actor Award at Locarno.
