EO is a beautiful, brilliant, and uncommon tale that'll stubbornly stick with you long after the credits roll. A gorgeously hypnotic drama about a donkey whose journey will break your heart, this potent Polish film follows EO, a grey donkey with melancholic eyes, as he meets good and bad people on his life's path, experiences joy and pain, and endures the wheel of fortune randomly turn his luck into disaster and his despair into unexpected bliss. But not even for a moment does he lose his innocence.
Inspired by Robert Bresson's 1966 film AU HASARD BALTHAZAR, EO premiered and won the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
Polish with subtitles. NR, 88 min.
"Viewers can make connections or interpret people, or actions, or emotions as desired. EO is not going to judge, but he is going to tell you what to think or feel, which is perhaps the beauty and brilliance of this uncommon film." – Salon.com
"EO’s personality shines thanks to Skolimowski’s daringly imaginative depictions, both visual and emotional, of the donkey’s point of view." – New Yorker
"In Bresson’s version, it’s the humans around the donkey who are the true center of the story. Not so in EO. This is Donkeyvision, and we’re better off for it." – indieWire
