Movie Info

Krzysztof and Joanna Kos-Krause's scathing family drama Savior's Square unfolds within the confines of one embittered and deeply troubled Polish family. The patriarch, Bartek, just recently sold his flat and purchased a house that brought on a tremendous amount of debt; in a desperate attempt to escape from this plight, he and his family accept his mother's seemingly generous offer to move back in with her - little aware that she is, in fact, manipulatively taking advantage of their situation and conning them. Life within her house grows predictably worse, as Bartek's wife, Beata, loses all sense of dignity from her mother-in-law's presence, and both she and the mother experience an icy distancing from Bartek. In time, Beata (who reaches her wit's end) undertakes a drastic action that brings temporary relief, but threatens to destroy the family in the process and evokes serious legal ramifications.

Critic Reviews for Saviour Square

All Critics (3)

Saviour's Square is a genuine tragedy, not the Paul Haggis variety in which beautiful actresses emote all over the place, but one where ordinary people try to cope with the inexorable forces at work in their lives, and all too often fail.

Saviour's Square certainly succeeds in its intimate and jarring portrayal of one family and how its members cope with the heavy weight of social and economic problems.

Plac Zbawiciela (Saviour Square) is anything if not a quality drama -- including the slight odour of naphthalene the term implies.
