WOMAN ON THE ROOF

Drama

Mira (Dorota Pomykala) is a 60 year old mother, wife and midwife and appears to have a normal life. One morning she starts her day like any other, wakes up early, puts her family's clothes out to dry, purchases food for her fish and commits a bank robbery. This unexpected act, breaks her family and life apart and she is forced to look within and discover what she must change to ensure a more fulfilling life.

Director Anna Jadowska has crafted an exquisite film that manages to be equally devastating, personal, hopeful and entertaining and includes several unforgettable dramatic scenes. Pomykala gives a tour de force performance as Mira, she is in nearly every scene and authentically lives and breathes this character onscreen and captures this character's inner struggles seamlessly. The side characters Mira encounters on her journey of self, are all truly memorable and celebrate the variety of humans on our planet. Inspired by a true story, this is a complex character portrayal told with outstanding cinematic realism.--Paul Struthers
