Synopsis
A man desperately tries to escape the memories of a painful childhood in this experimental feature from Polish artist and filmmaker Lech Majewski. A young poet (Patryk Czajka) is exiled to a mental hospital and finds himself haunted by scenes from his life as a boy, living with a father (Grzegorz Przybyl) who meted out frequent violence and a mother (Joanna Litwin) who did nothing to stop the pain. The poet's tortured recollections are interspersed by surreal, silent tableaux that juxtapose the terrible and the ordinary as accompanied by nature sounds and found noises. Glass Lips was originally conceived and presented as a series of 33 short video pieces, shown as part of a gallery installation Majewski titled "Blood of a Poet," though the material was later edited into a feature film for theatrical screenings. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
