Lessons Of Love

Malgorzata Goliszewska, Kasia Mateja, 74 min, Poland.


Lover. Mother. Friend. Sinner. Wife.

For decades, Jola did what was expected of her. As a mother of six and the wife of an abusive husband, she would put on her make-up and colourful clothes to pretend everything was fine.

One day something breaks inside her and she finds the strength to leave her husband and start living life to the fullest. She hangs out with her girlfriends, dances in Café Smile, writes poems and songs. She sings about love – something she’s always dreamt of, yet never experienced. Unexpectedly, she meets Wojtek, who treats her like a queen. Will she be able to open up and embrace love for the first time? Especially, when she finds out that she has less time than she thought?

Lessons Of Love is a highly cinematic and joyful journey into a woman’s battle to reinvent herself in her best age of life, at sixty-nine.​
