The Cleaner (Cistic)
Presented by the Consulate General of Slovakia
New York premiere. Slovakia. Dir. Peter Bebjak. 2015, 94 mins. In Slovak with English subtitles. With Noël Czuczor, Rebeka Poláková, Kamil Kollárik. Just out of prison, Tomáš, a taciturn loner, takes a job cleaning houses where people have recently died. Things take an alarming turn when he begins putting in overtime: hiding behind closet doors after hours to secretly watch the homes’ residents. His voyeuristic proclivities soon lead to a romantic obsession with a woman in distress—but in order to help her, Tomáš will have to come out of the shadows. This gripping psychological drama toys with thriller conventions while delivering a darkly stylish portrait of urban alienation.
