Body (2015) MIFF Film Review

big_1135faf788

I love it when MIFF gives me films I’d never see otherwise. Take Body, the Polish film about an attorney who is dealing with mysterious and often extremely horrible cases at his work, meanwhile grieving for his recently deceased wife and trying to care for his bulimic daughter. Then add into the mix a counsellor who, in her spare time, channels the dead.

It’s strange and odd, but ultimately heart warming and delightful. And extremely funny, in a most dark manner.
