Ecstasy of St. Agnes - review
Two women, appearing to be identical twins slowly enter a blank white space. One of them speaks: Everything is repeated. Everything is repetitive. This sets the scene for the poetic journey that is The Ecstasy of St Agnes.
Referencing the virgin martyr, Agnes of Rome, Polish film-maker Slawomir Milewski gives
a contemporary twist to the concept of ecstasy. Through the repetition of simple acts and phrases, Milewski explores the complexities of human emotions – love, desire, loneliness. Attuned to nuances and quirky juxtapositions that others might overlook, he observes festival revelers gyrating to an unheard rhythm and follows a sartorially elegant figure cavorting in a field. 
So much more complex than a cut and paste of Milewski’s surrealist images, the film develops into a conflation of footage displaying a myriad of contemporary cultural ecstasies. Predominantly black and white, it captures the feel of vintage classic films, but is then spliced with a flash of color. Vertical figures are tipped on their sides. A cube of thrusting limbs emerges from a cloudy sky. Milewski breaks all the rules with the ease of a seasoned storyteller adept at keeping his audience guessing.
Deftly weaving in the dreamlike audio, Milewski’s subtle humor permeates through to the final scene.
