"CLOSE TIES" AWARDED IN MONTENEGRO
On August 7th the Herceg Novi Film Festival came to an end. Grand Prix Award was given to "Close Ties" by Zofia Kowalewska.
The Herceg Novi Film Festival presents documentary movies from all over the world. This year the Festival Grand Prix Golden Mimosa went to "Close Ties" by Zofia Kowalewska, for the subtle and multidimensional presentation of human relations.
"Close Ties" tell the story of the forty fifth marriage anniversary. Barbara and Zdzisław could be proud of themselves if not for the fact that for eight years the husband left the wife for his lover. But now they are getting older together, although Barbara claims that if it were not for his infirm legs, Zdzisław would still be 'chasing skirts around Krakow'. Despite the past resentments and everyday problems with bills, occupied bathroom and furniture rearrangement, they are linked by a hard to define bond.
The full list of the awarded films can be found at the festival website.
