‘A rivetingly sober, incisive investigation of loneliness and intimacy in the Instagram era.’

Awards Daily

Swedish director Magnus Von Horn’s Polish-language feature Sweat follows three days in the life of fitness motivator Sylwia. She’s beautiful, young and full of energy and her social media presence has made her a celebrity. But for all her hundreds of thousands of followers and admiring acquaintances, Sylwia feels she is starting to miss true intimacy.

With her magnetic screen presence Magdalena Koleśnik is the very embodiment of an Influencer we all want to follow. As her character wrestles with her popularity, she’s forced to confront the disconnect between her public and personal existence in vivid detail.

This bright and shiny character-driven drama might appear as though it’s just another send-up of social media madness, but is in fact a taut, emotional and fully-realised character study.
