Casting a young autistic man with love troubles as Don Juan in a play – cruel joke, or insightful helping hand? Twenty-two year-old Oleg is a gentle character, ruthlessly put upon by his mother to get up and at ’em. Marched off to therapy that somehow includes acting classes, the bewildered Oleg is subjected to some decidedly questionable exercises and advice. Can acting training, particularly of this bizarre variety, really be the answer? Filmmaker Jerzy Sladkowski finds the moments of sardonic humour amidst the pathos in this artfully constructed fish out of water tale, revealing much about romance and gender roles, parental pressure, and the desire to belong.
