Renninger Ann Carolin
No Peace Without War
Ewa and Piotr Sosnowski are descended from a now-impoverished noble Polish family. Today the two elderly siblings, both heavy drinkers and chain-smokers, share a run-down flat in an old building. Photos in black and white bear silent witness to better days and create a strong contrast to their present lives. Dangerously close to its subjects, this film succeeds in telling a remarkable and disturbing story about memory and loss.
