Reality and fantasy mix freely in this beautifully shot thriller from Poland, about a police investigator trying to solve the crime of a cop friend who was pushed out a window. Our hero’s investigation of the crime takes him into a strange world of untrustworthy sources as he weaves in and out of his own hazy visions in an effort to find the culprit. Few endings have taken the audience in such a bold new direction as this one does, and its audacity to do so is alone worth giving it a look.
