The best Polish film in 2009, awarded the Grand Prix at the Gdynia Film Festival and the Eagle of the Polish Film Academy. Set in the 1950s, Reverse tells the story of Sabina (Agata Buzek) – a modest employee of a publishing house, a ‘grey mouse’, who her mother (Krystyna Janda) and grandmother (Anna Polony) unsuccessfully try to wed. All of the sudden, a handsome, although dark, man (Marcin Dorociński) turns up in her life and his presence starts a series of surprising events. Borys Lankosz’s black comedy, depicting three generations of Polish women, tells a lot about the horrors of the Stalinist era, but a bit about modern times as well.
