— so beautifully shot and directed. I think this film is going to be striking and original, a real eye opener for audiences.”

The screenplay is by Szumowska and her regular writing collaborator (and cinematographer) Michal Englert. The film tells the story of Zenia, an industrious Ukrainian migrant worker in Poland. Zenia works as a masseur who makes house calls to the needy and aspirational residents of a middle-class gated community near Warsaw. He is privy to all of their problems, anxieties and secrets — and something of an unwitting guru figure. Zenia’s grounded spirituality, apparent healing powers and broad shoulders make him an object of lust for many of the lost souls in the community.

Production design is by Jagna Janicka, casting by Magdalena Szwarcbart, sound by Marcin Jachyra, costume design by Katarzyna Lewińska and make-up by Waldemar Pokromski. The producers are Agnieszka Wasiak and Mariusz Włodarski for Lava Films, and Viola Fügen and Michael Weber for Match Factory ProductionsWonder Zenia will be sold internationally by The Match FactoryKino Świat will release the film in Poland.
