in Austrian cinemas from March 22nd 2013

RESETTLEMENT / EKSMISJA
A unique Polish couple in their 80s. After living for 66 years in their flat, they have to move out. While MARIA is an extraordinary spirit full of sparkling optimism and vitality - TADEUSZ is a silent scientist and a fatalist. Now they have to fight their existential disaster that unveils the touching stories of their life and casts a shadow over their present. It's a film about justice and equality - the crisis of morality in past and present modern society, as well as about how to get old - staying young.

comments

Artur Liebhart, festival director, Warsaw
"In Poland, unlike in no other post-socialist country, helpless people have been turned in to the brutal way of the housing market. Although in 1989 the first Polish prime minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki has expressed the need of continuation of the Socialist obligations after, soon afterwards the situation turned into the "Wild East". The governments in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Germany, however, took the tenant protection seriously, because they knew, that the people must have a minimum of social and psychological security in the form of a flat."

eksmisja

I just wanted to let you know I loved the film. I found it very moving, and rich in the way it moves through so many layers, themes (gentrification, home, post WWll, ageing, family, storytelling, gardening, pleasure, struggle, political and personal change...). It feels like a privilege to be let into these people's lives from such an intimate perspective. Aesthetically I liked its spaciousness, rhythm, sound, the use of still images, the quietness of the filmmaker's "voice"...

Thank you! All the best, Vida (Canada)
