Loving / Sławomir Fabicki

Fabicki captures what lies hidden in the private sphere, in the story of Maria and Tomek, a modern couple who seem to live in a perfect world – but only on paper. The arrival of their first child will complete their personal bliss, as a complement to their professional success. However, an act of inexcusable violence (pregnant Maria’s rape by the town mayor – who happens to be her boss and is madly in love with her) tears the family apart. The director uses an extreme incident as a catalyst, in order to explore the core of marriage and the condition of living under the same roof under intense pressure. During this painful journey, his characters will remain themselves, unwilling to adjust to clichés and stereotypes. Loving is a realistic study of the expression of love and its multiple facets: fear, jealousy, forgiveness, absolute surrender. Step by step, the characters’ emotions dissolve, but also become deeper: a contradiction which will heal the heroes, along with the audience.
