CAST
NEVER GONNA SNOW AGAIN
Starring Alec Utgoff, Weronika Rosati, Agata Kulesza, Maja Ostaszewska, Katarzyna Figura, Borys Szyc and Jaroslaw Milner. Directed by Małgorzata Szumowska.

One grey, foggy morning, a mysterious young man, Zhenia, crosses the border from Ukraine into Poland, carrying only a massage table. When faced with a staid official at Warsaw’s immigration office, he secures the necessary residence permit by simply taking the man’s head in his huge, soft hands and massaging him into a trance.

Zhenia soon establishes himself with the well-to-do residents of a suburban gated community of identical white McMansions, where his unique talents quickly become in demand. Among the clientele are Maria, who finds a calm in Zhenia that her hostile children and husband don’t provide; derisive widow Ewa who lusts after the masseur in more ways than she’ll dare admit; a woman obsessed by her three bulldogs who pleads for them to also be treated, and Wika, who has invested the last hopes for her cancer-stricken husband in Zhenia’s seemingly magical fingertips. But as he navigates through the affairs, drinking, drug-taking and games of neighbourly one-upmanship, no one thinks to ask Zhenia about his own concerns, least of all his mysterious origins.
