The Last Room on the Left

Poland2021fiction30'International Short Film CompetitionNational Competition

‘I’m here because of the add’ – a boy in foggy glasses wearing a warm hat explains the reason for his unexpected visit to an irritated landlady. When it turns out that he is solvent, hostility gives place to effusive cordiality. The woman invites him inside. Is it really the room he was looking for? Or, maybe, it is a trap out of which he will not manage to get out? Adrian Apanel’s film is a crazy adventure during which anything can happen. It includes black humour, a screeching floor, a dark villa with its strange residents, moments of terror and laughter. The film is a real treat in its genre.
