The Visit


Jurek sets out on a journey to his hometown after several years away. For the hero, educated in the big city, a visit to his parents’ house is both a challenge and a necessity. To overcome a crisis in his life, the young man must face up to recollections from the past, the ghosts of the departed and his obsessive feeling that his life is ending. This coming-of-age story plays out to the rhythm of a trip on a night train, where as if in a dream, the significant mixes with the banal, and solemnity merges into the grotesque.
