Synopsis

Spoor Directed by Agnieszka Holland
The film’s driving, often soaring camera moves (Jolanta Dylewska is one of the world’s great cinematographers and here she shares credit with another Holland veteran, Rafal Paradowski) and its dark, propulsive orchestral score are scaled to the majesty of the forest and to the passion of the woman who is its steward. . . . Epic as the depiction of the natural world is, Spoor is also filled with scenes of great intimacy, some of them joyous, some of them heart-wrenching.

Noirish imagery contributes to the atmosphere, and sweeping camera movements suggest there’s more to the story than meets the eye. But the oddball characters and twisty narrative seem almost surrealistically implausible, and the utopian conclusion, apparently a response to right-wing politics in Poland, seemed nutty to me.

Holland lights up this idiosyncratic “metaphysical thriller” set in the Polish mountains with a playful, anarchic spirit and taste for the absurd.
