Fugue trailer: A new film by the director of The Lure
If you haven't seen director Agnieszka Smoczynska's 2015 film, The Lure, then that's something you should rectify as soon as possible. It's not everyday you get to watch a cannibal mermaid musical after all. The good news is Smoczynska is currently in Cannes promoting her new film Fugue, which going by the trailer looks a little more straight forward, but then again how do you follow up such a unique début? The first trailer for Fugue is now available to watch and you can set your eyes on it above.
Alicja has no memory and no knowledge about how she lost it. In two years, she manages to build a new, independent self, away from home. She doesn’t want to remember the past. So, when her family finds her, she is forced to fit into the roles of a mother, daughter and wife, surrounded by what seem to be complete strangers. What remains once you forget you loved someone? Is it necessary to remember the emotion of love in order to feel happiness?
Smoczynska teams up with actress Gabriela Muskala who takes the lead role and also penned the script, with Lukasz Simlat, Malgorzata Buczkowska and Piotr Skiba (who also appeared The Lure) all in support.
