Shortlista – Official selection
Ewa’s life is seemingly monotonous, but the accompanying soundtrack makes for real cacophony. In the foreground, there are calls from a nagging mother, or tirades by nursing lecturers made in a robotic tone. Exposed to a mixture of good advice, prohibitions and conservative nonsense, Ewa’s mind begins to play tricks on her. Growing is a commentary on the limitation of the right to abortion and the related situation of Polish women, which the director discusses in the very adequate horror convention.
