Marcin Wrona’s Film in Vienna

As of May 24, 2013, Austrian audiences will be able to see Marcin Wrona’s feature Chrzest (The Christening) at the Top Kino cinema in Vienna.

Chrzest (The Christening)

Michał has everything he ever dreamed of: a beautiful wife named Magda, a newborn son, and his own company. He invites his childhood friend Janek to be the baby’s godfather. That is only the beginning of Michał’s plan; he asks his friend to become interested in Magda. At first things go according to plans, but it becomes increasingly difficult for Michał to deal with the new situation. Michał is aware that his well-hidden past will inevitably come to haunt him. Janek will then have to make a decision, the consequences of which he will never forget.
