Synopsis

Fearing the mediocrity of a life focused only on material gain, Filip is torn between devoting himself to serving God or helping humanity as a medical doctor. Although conflicted over his spiritual needs and his love for Hanka, he withdraws to a mountain retreat, which might cost him Hanka forever.

Our take

Directed by one of the most important Polish auteurs of his generation, Krzysztof Zanussi’s erudite drama The Supplement revisits the characters of his earlier film Life As A Fatal Sexually Transmitted Disease, but this time ponders about issues of religion, philosophy and social responsibility.
