Stranger Directed by Małgorzata Szumowska

Critics reviews

A real revelation was The Stranger, made in 2001 before her international reputation was kicking into gear. It’s a work of raw, grit-tinged tenderness that shows a younger, more earnest phase in the director’s worldview. Introducing the film, Szumowska admitted she couldn’t bear to watch it again after all these years… But the film’s earnestness is punctuated with a fierce intensity that carries depth of feeling without ever crossing into easy sentimentality.
