Movie Info

Living amid domestic instability and teenaged volatility, a sister and brother play out their lives on camera. At fourteen, Ola is already functioning as the woman of the house, cooking and cleaning for her lethargic father and helping her energetic autistic brother, Nikodem, prepare for his first Holy Communion. Throughout, she longs for her mother, whose absence is never explained, yet always deeply felt. As the date of Communion nears, it becomes an opportunity for the family to meet up and Ola is entirely responsible for planning the perfect family celebration. Communion is a portrait of young womanhood and crash course in growing up that teaches us that no failure is final, and that change is possible and needed, especially when love is in question.

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

Communion does not push for an emotional response from the audience. It doesn't have to.

Jan 4, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Communion" is a heartbreaking example of a classic documentary genre - the immersive, observational film that takes a bold leap and embeds itself with a small group of people.

Quietly wrenching.

The burden of premature adult responsibilities forced on children by childish adults has rarely been captured quite so vividly as in "Communion."

Top Critic

A bleak film but a necessary one, Communion is leavened with humour and quietly celebrates Ola's impressive endurance.

Zamecka, through the pure vérité of her observational lens, offers searing criticisms of Polish society and its full-throated re-embrace of Catholicism since ... communism.
