POLAND , Czech Republic , Sweden | 103 minutes | 2018

In this highly anticipated new film by Agnieszka Smoczynska (The Lure), Alicja suddenly turns up in an urban train station two years after she disappeared. She has no recollection of where she’s been. Gradually, she starts piecing together her past as someone’s daughter, wife and mother, but against a sense of mounting unease. Where has she really been? Why should she now conform to this image of a woman imposed by those around her? Deft, enigmatic and eminently topical, Fugue treads the fine line between oppressive realism and paranoid fantasy in its portrait of an exhausted woman battling conflicting realities.
