In 1949 Poland, Wiktor tours the countryside recording folk music with his partner, Irena, accompanied by a government emissary. The three create a folk dance and music ensemble housed in a dilapidated villa, where students are transformed into culture workers for the Polish Peoples Republic. Ultimately, Irena and Viktor are fatefully mismatched yet condemned to one another an impossible love story in impossible times.

Cannes Film Festival: Best Director
A near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history thats both deeply personal and politically attuned. Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
A dazzling, painful, universal odyssey through the human heart and all its strange compulsions. It could be the most achingly romantic film youll see this year, or just a really painful reminder of the one that got away. Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
