Our take

Jerzy Skolimowski’s late-career triumph is a visually intrepid immersion into the world of a long-suffering donkey. Ecstatic and heartbreaking, this dazzling drama of a divided Europe, which boldly reworks Bresson’s classic Au Hasard Balthazar, was Poland’s official submission to the Oscars®.
