The Last Family

Contemporary World Cinema | 2016 | 123 minutes

Stranger Says:

Even with Dawid Ogrodnik, so fine in the Oscar-winning Ida and SIFF favorite Life Feels Good, The Last Family is an enervating, if lovingly lit, docudrama that never finds a consistent tone. The action spans 1977 to 2005 as the too-insular Beksinski family carries out their affairs from a Warsaw apartment complex. Dad is a surrealist painter (his favorite saying: “This make me wet”), the son (Ogrodnik in hyped-up mode) is a bipolar radio host, and the long-suffering mom puts up with them all. What follows: 28 years of suicide attempts, terminal illnesses, and murder. Fun!
