Cannes Film Fest 2022: Best Films–EO by Jerzy Skolimowski


Cannes Film Fest (Competition)

Polish auteur Jerzy Skolimowski, the oldest director in competition this year, chronicles the adventures–high and low– in the life of a donkey traveling across Europe as it passes through various hands and tries to find some peace.

A companion piece to Robert Bresson’s great Au Hasard Balthazar, the film (which won a shared third-place Jury prize) is an engrossingly immersive experience of breathtaking imagery and minimalist narrative.
