Touching, light in tone and beautifully nuanced film from acclaimed director, Małgorzata Szumowska, about the inextricable link between mind and body, the grief after losing a loved one and different ways of dealing with it.

 

An official selection at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival Main Competition and the winner of Silver Bear for Best Director.  

 

A busy prosecutor is worried that his anorexic daughter Olga, who is grieving over her recently deceased mother, might try to harm herself.  He forces her to see Anna, a quirky psychiatrist who is dealing with her own loss in an unusual way.

 

"Body" explores various approaches to our relationship with our body and our sensory experience of the world.

She has been honoured with several international awards, including the Teddy Award for "In The Name Of" at the Berlin Film Festival and the Silver Leopard Award at the Locarno Film festival for "33 Scenes From Life". Malgorzata Szumowska was twice nominated for the European Film Awards for "Happy Man" and "Stranger". She is a winner of many prestigious prizes in Poland.
