Synopsis

Olga, who struggles with anorexia, is sent to a psychiatric hospital where she is treated by Anna—a therapist who believes herself to be able to communicate with ghosts. Anna insists that she has been in contact with Olga’s dead mother, and she asks permission to participate in a seance.

Our take

One of Poland’s most talented directors, Małgorzata Szumowska won her first Silver Bear for this quirky study on the side effects of human grief. Intertwining elements of mystery drama, afterlife enquiry, and dark comedy, Body also serves as a sharp, uncommon observation of modern-day ethics.
