Agnieszka Smoczyńska Poland, 2018

I.Camera's rating of the film Fugue

An intriguing film about a woman who has reappeared after a long and initially unexplained absence, and who is now disconnected from her husband, child and any expectations as to what a 'good mother' should be. The deep focus cinematography often positions its lead in the centre of an expansive widescreen shot, as isolated and independent as Varda's Vagabond. A work on feminist identity (disguised as psychodrama).
