Cannes Film Festival 2008 Program Note
The Best Short Fiction/ Era New Horizons 2008
Basia has already settled down in her life. She is a housewife and has a loving family. It seems as though she does not miss anything to be happy; until the moment an opera diva moves into an apartment upstairs. Basia is enchanted and seduced with her voice. A peculiar relationship is born between them. It develops into a feeling which is not particularly comfortable for either of the two women. The film was produced within the frame of “30 minutes” Project - held by Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing, The Association of Polish Filmmakers, TVP Kultura and Polish Film Institute.
Basia seems to have a perfect life as a housewife with her happy family. But when an opera singer with a great voice moves in upstairs, her life gets shaken upside down. Basia gets attracted to the voice of the singer, who in turn finds beauty and passion in Basia. Eventually, they fall in a deadly love. The most beautiful and thrilling part in this movie is the scene where the opera singer upstairs sings in harmony to the sound of Basia downstairs as she is making love to her husband.
