The drama and great music pull you in

"Immoral Story (Historia Niemoralna) is a film about a film. The movie starts out with a director asking an actress named Ewa (Dorota Stalinska) to be in a film about Ewa's life. Ewa had some rough times and this film will be how she tries to build herself up again.
Ewa is a self-centered middle-aged actress. She believes the world revolves around her and her ego. Unfortunately for her, she is in a career slump. The story is about how she tries to pull herself out of the mud. Perhaps it's a bit of bad luck or the influence of her acquaintances, but as a fly stuck in a web she cannot seem to get free easily. Her personal life mirrors her career problems; she has just as many problems with the men as she does with work.
Just as the drama and great music pull you in, you are reminded with a short segment showing the director and her assistant editing the story. The director is more concerned about making a story than she is in presenting a flattering portrait of her actress friend.
Don't let the title of the movie mislead you; the story may be immoral on more than one level, but it is done without gratuitousness. The drama in this movie is on par with Polish films finest. If you love drams, Immoral Story is for you.
