Code Blue

Fortnight 2011, Feature film, 1h20

Synopsis

Marian, a middle aged nurse, devotes herself to her patients like a saint. Sometimes she even takes on the role of a redeemer, by helping the gravely ill to the soothing order of ultimate silence. When she gets linked to a neighbor in an act of common voyeurism, she becomes fascinated by him. Faced with the fragility of these newfound emotions, Marian surrenders to her human needs…
« In this portrait of a woman, both moving and disturbing, magnificently interpreted by Bien de Moor, Urszula Antoniak tackles a number of taboo subjects – solitude, sexuality and death – that both repel and fascinate the audience, placing them in a very uncomfortable position.  « (…) My film needs to be a challenging experience ».
