A Hypnotic Mystery

A police inspector attempts to solve a truly twisty mystery in Palimpsest, all the while struggling to maintain his own sanity. This stylish Polish thriller depicts both his real-world case work and the strange illusions that are generated by his rapidly disintegrating mind.

From the Back Cover:

Marek is a police inspector, a man on the verge of psychological disintegration trying to solve an intricate case. The story is told on two planes. The first one is a crime story, which constitutes the framework of the film. In the course of events, another theme appears—psychological experiences of the main character. Vivid blend of picture with sound and music will draw the audience into the deepest recesses of Marek's mind, making the viewers face questions: What is reality and what is only an illusion? Where is the borderline between the real world and our perception of it? What makes suffering meaningful and what is really important in one's life?
