Journey to Rome

Vašek is a nice ladwho turns into thief when he falls in lovewith a femme fatale called Ginger: armed with a false moustache, sunglasses and a stolen painting, he gets on a train to Rome. The train compartment is full of passengers keen to impart their life stories – to him or to anyone who’ll listen. Spiritual comedy, railroad movie, a polemic on our journey through life – Tomasz Mielnik’s feature debut is all these.

TOMASZ MIELNIK Born in 1980. Studied art history at the University of Wrocław. He then moved to Prague where he completed his film directing course at FAMU with the feature Journey to Rome.
