Synopsis

In Hope, Francis, a lonely angelic-looking young man, witnessing the theft of a rare painting from a church, finds himself embroiled in a game of blackmail as he tries to make the culprit undo his crime. This beautifully shot thriller-cum-morality tale takes place in shiny modern Warsaw, but there's a fine contrast of darkness and shadows amongst its denizens.

Third in the trilogy of films representing not only Dante's concepts of heaven, hell and purgatory but also the Christian ideals of love, faith and hope, all penned by Krzysztof Piesiewicz (responsible too for much of Krzysztof Kieslowski's best work) Hope follows Tom Tykwer's Heaven (KFF 2002) and Danis Tanowic's L'Enfer.
