On a gray, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, Zhenia, a quiet but charismatic masseur from the Ukraine, enters a gated community and the lives of the wealthy residents. Using mesmerising and inexplicable techniques that take his clients into a trip deep into their inner selves, he is quickly viewed as a guru. A meditation on class, immigration and global warming with touches of magical realism, this Polish entry for Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards is an elegant audiovisual treat.
