The world is a mysterious place when seen through the eyes of an animal. EO (‘eee-ohhh’), a donkey with melancholy eyes, meets both good and bad people on his life's path through modern-day Poland and Italy. He undergoes joy and pain, the arbitrariness of the wheel of fortune making his happiness a disaster and his despair an unexpected windfall. But unlike man, he never loses his innocence. Polish legend Jerzy Skolimowski provides a visually experimental addition to Robert Bresson's 1966 black-and-white drama ‘Au Hasard Balthazar’ that is a gorgeously shot as anything you will see this year!

‘A shocking and tender tour de force about life, love, death and the wretched disregard human beings hold toward other living creatures… EO [the donkey] is an astonishment and so too is this wild, boldly expressionistic movie that conveys the life of its largely silent protagonist with a bare minimum of dialogue.’—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
