The film is retracing the love story of an unusual and unique creative union. It is a well-hidden treasure in the culture and art of the 20th century. Franciszka and Stefan Themerson lived and worked together for almost sixty years.

It's a warm and pleasant biopic. At first I was disappointed how little time was devoted to Themersons's filmic work but then appreciated it focused on the less known part of their lives. Still, even though it contains various kinds of information, the film doesn't completely uncover Themersons's personas. You may feel you got to know them a bit, but in fact they remain a very enigmatic couple. Probably for ever.
