Sweet Rush


Dir. Andrzej Wajda (2009).
Poland’s greatest film artist was 83 when he made this pastoral melodrama on aging and loss. Set in the early days of Poland’s postwar World War II “rebirth” and reminiscent of the mid ‘60s Bergman-inflected Euro art film, Sweet Rush is galvanized by Krystyna Janda’s glorious performance as a doctor’s wife who falls in love with an avatar of her dead sons.
