Coming from a female Polish director, Nic is an authentic depiction of women's issues, particularly in the context of the changing mores and values of Eastern European society. A mother of three children is pregnant again, but she conceals this from her husband for fear of losing him. The lies with which she surrounds herself turn her life into a living hell, which draws her to despair. With a minimalist style and tightly knit dialogue, the director/screenwriter Dorota Kedzierzawska carefully avoids the dangers of tear-jerking melodrama, and instead creates a realistic picture of social and cultural conditions in her country. The photography by Arthur Reinhart is superb.
