The Master

The Master


Piotr Trzaskalski

2005, 1 h 50 min

A 45-year-old Russian travels through Poland with a wandering circus. One night, he lets animals out of cages and observes in amazement how tigers, camels and elephants walk on the square of a sleeping town. The next day, he’s fired and sets off on a lonely journey. Together with Młody and Angela he accidentally met, they perform on the street. The Master throws knives, Andżela assists him and Młody shows off by playing the accordion. The Master has an ambitious plan: he wants to go to Paris where he believes is the right space for his art.
