[⏵] A profound Polish social satire about a masseur who becomes a guru for Warsaw’s high society. The Ukrainian migrant Zhenia works as a masseur in Poland, concentrating on house calls in Warsaw‘s upper class. Before long, the mysterious stranger with the interesting accent becomes much sought-after in the drab gated community. People tell each other that he can see directly into their souls and that his hands are absolutely magical. And the more clients he has, the more Zhenia is seen as a guru who is changing local life for ever.
