Mother Teresa of Cats
Matka Teresa od kotów | Pawel Sala, 2009
Poland | Polish with English Subtitles | 90M minutes

Dysfunction turns to disaster when two brothers murder their cat-loving mother in this sobering, innovatively told drama based on a true story. Confident 22-year-old Artur (Mateusz Kosciukiewicz, star of All That I Love) grows increasingly rebellious, a volatile combination alongside his admiring 12-year-old sibling Marcin (Filip Grabacz). Marking playwright Pawel Sala’s debut fiction feature, and starring Ewa Skibinska as the mother, Mother Teresa traces the path of deviance through serial flashbacks that deepen the mystery of the tipping point from instability to tragedy.
