Vincent Gallo goes on the run in the dead of winter in Jerzy Skolimowski’s nearly wordless thriller.
Mohammed (Gallo) is transported from his sun-seared homeland to a temporary detention centre in wintry Poland, escapes, and then tries to stay alive in a terrifyingly unfamiliar environment where his appearance automatically sees him labelled as a potentially dangerous terrorist. With even less dialogue than EO, this multiple award winner is the closest Skolimowski came to purely visual cinema.
