"You Have No Idea How Much I Love You"
dir. Paweł Łoziński, Poland 2016, 80'
What does the word "love" really mean? During our lives, we often create bonds and ties with our close ones, which with time seem to us impossible to untangle. The film tells the story of the tragedy of two women, mother and daughter, bound together by a difficult, complicated feeling. For the protagonists, the crucial event is a meeting with a third person, a stranger who becomes a close one, an experienced therapist. His basic tools are words and empathy.
Paweł Łoziński invites us to participate in private therapy sessions. In an intimate conversation of three people, old wounds and deeply hidden emotions of the protagonists slowly come to the surface. Will it be possible for them to leave the circle of long-standing grudges? Or to cut the umbilical cord connecting them without the risk of losing their bond? In the safe environment of the consulting-room, the therapist takes the protagonists on a difficult journey into themselves and at the same time, towards better mutual relationship. We watch closely the spiritual process of untangling the ties which cumulated with the passage of time. Is there a chance to heal the "scar left by the mother" on both sides of the severed umbilical cord?
