My Wonderful Wanda(EUFF 2023)
Wanda is a Polish caretaker who has left her own small children in Poland to look after Josef, the stroke-ridden patriarch of the wealthy Wegmeister-Gloor dynasty. Wanda is adept in navigating the tricky family dynamics between the two grown (if still childish) offspring and the elegant if controlling matriarch Elsa, along with the sporadic intervention of animals stuffed or alive. But an unexpected turn of events turns everything upside down. While the film exposes present-day realities of class injustice, thanks to the empathetic lens, it is never less than a very human comedy.
