Editorial Reviews

Marek is a police inspector on the verge of psychological disintegration trying to solve an intricate case. The story is told on two planes. The first one is a crime story, which constitutes the framework of the film. In the course of events, another theme appears - psychological experiences of the main character. Vivid blend of picture with sound and music will draw the audience into the deepest recesses of Marek's mind, making the viewers face questions: What is reality and what is only an illusion? Where is the borderline between the real world and our perception of it? What makes suffering meaningful and what is really important in one's life?

Format: DVD
Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery is movie that fits the genres of psychological or thriller, but it ultimately is a mystery. The story begins with Marek (Andrzej Chyra) investigating the death of a fellow police officer that is proving to be a difficult case. His investigation shows that he is somehow linked to the murder, he just isn't sure how. The mystery then shifts to another level, perhaps more haunting than the first.

Hallucinations, dreams, memories, and the true reality overlap and nearly merge into a confused state giving us a mystery that is complicated and hard to unravel. The suspense is wound tight as we are left wondering what the truth is but there are some visual clues to help distinguish different planes of existence. Watching for details may be helpful in solving the mystery so looking away for too long is not advised. There is a good chance that Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery may leave you wanting to watch it again to pick up any missed details to take it all in.

Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery is a unique movie with a bit of an artistic element to it. It is aptly named as "palimpsest" means to wash away or scrape clean and reuse, which was a practice done to manuscripts to reuse them. I won't give away any more of the plot so you will have to see for yourself if you agree with me.

I bought this DVD out of curiosity and my liking of noir films. Boy oh boy how I got so lucky. The picture quality was like it was transfered from an unmastered VHS, the English subtitles were really small and non-removable and the plot was so disinteresting. I didn't really care what was going on and I couldn't make head nor tail of most of the movie since the picture was so abysmal and the camera movement was pretentiously jittering. Such a dark day for Polish cinema. I'd rather see TRICKS (SZTUCZKI) once again.
