Wild Roses

Wild Roses, "Dzikie róże"

Synopsis

Director

After spending some time in a hospital, Ewa returns to her Polish village to work on a wild rose plantation. Her family situation gets increasingly complicated, however, as her husband returns home from abroad, while it is revealed that Ewa has had an affair with a high-school-aged boy. Meanwhile, her relationship with her two children is strained, in particular with the headstrong Marysia, who is approaching her first communion. As things pile up for Ewa, she starts to realize that the time has come to make some difficult decisions.

„The paradox of motherhood, social expectations imposed on mothers, the essence of motherhood-based love are the topics which I would like to deal with in this story but not on a teaching or moralizing basis. Instead I would like to intermingle them in the heroine’s authentic fate so that the most important questions regarding these problems can be asked.“
