Description

"A ravishingly beautiful visual triumph."—Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

"Bringing [a] novel to animated life in this way isn’t just an adaptation, it’s an illumination."—Christian Blauvelt, IndieWire

"A disconcertingly beautiful picture about the ugliness of humanity."—Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)

Comprised of 56,000 hand painted frames by 100 artists, this uniquely beautiful adaptation from the directors of Loving Vincent, tells the story of Jagna, a young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish village – a hotbed of gossip and on-going feuds, held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land, adherence to colourful traditions and deep-rooted patriarchy. When Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village’s richest farmer, his eldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts her on a tragic collision course with the community around her.
