When the outbreak of war in Poland in 1939 crushes 11-year-old Marek’s dream of a summer trip to Venice, he tries to escape the frightening reality into which he’s suddenly been thrown by hiding in his aunt’s basement—until it’s flooded by a violent storm. Devising a plan to distract her nephew from the horrors outside, she helps him undertake his journey after all as they construct a replica of Venice, its islands rising out of the water. Together they enter into a subterranean dream world—which begins to seem more real than the one above ground.

Stunningly beautiful cinematography by Arthur Reinhart, who also filmed and edited Jutro bedzie lepiej (2011), another great film.
Pacing was a little slow
Had to think about the ending to 'get it'

Uneven film, but Marcin Walewski makes it a must see for this crowd.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
Well worth watching if only for Marcin Walewski as Marek. The film looks great and has some lovely music. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. It was too brief and left one thinking WTF just happened.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
