I hesitate to peg this as a biopic since the movie's main character, famed Polish naivist painter Nikifor, remains rather elusive throughout. Krauze interestingly enough chooses to focus on his mentor Marian Wlosinski instead, who in fact pretty much gave up on his own carreer as an artist to support his protegé. The result is an inspiring study of compassion and devotion. The movie of course ultimately belongs to Krystyna Feldman, already in her late eighties by then, for her inspired portrayal of Nikifor. A marvellous performance.
