/ ROUGH TREATMENT
Jerzy Michalowski, late thirties, is at the summit of his life: Allende’s overthrow, Castro’s rise to power, the US’s humiliation at the Bay of Pigs – you name it – the renowned Polish foreign correspondent was there. Things seem well with his wife Ewa and his daughter Ola, too – until the day Ewa picks him up from the airport and tells him at their front door that she will leave him and take the child with her. Jerzy falls into an abyss and experiences a complete personal and professional destruction. Wajdas thought-provoking modern version of Hiob’s tale thrives from his art of splitting narrative perspective.
