Description Technical Specs
This inventive tale from director Jan Jakub Kolski (Pornografia) tells of aging peasant Johnny Aquarius, who discovers that he's bestowed with the power to make it rain, heal the sick, and cause water to flow upwards. He leaves his pregnant wife and sets off to perform miracles for the local folk, who follow him and hang on his every deed. In this fable of folly and hubris, Kolski returns to his unique style of magic realism, in which extraordinary events occur in an ordinary world. With veteran Polish actor Franciszek Pieczka. In Polish with English subtitles.
