Andrew Semans, USA 2022, 103’
Polish premiere
Last Days of August Sharp Stick

A successful businesswoman has to face her repressed fears when she meets the man who caused the greatest tragedy of her life years ago. A psychological thriller in the spirit of Polanski’s Repulsion with masterful roles by Rebecca Hall and Tim Roth.

There are very few actors with Rebecca Hall’s facility for making difficult, even contradictory characters seem plausible. So it’s quite something to say that even her knack for the dignified and intelligent portrayal of mental and behavioral instability meets its Waterloo with Andrew Semans’ “Resurrection,” a psychological thriller that starts off promisingly before swerving into serious (and sadly self-serious) derangement.
