This audacious coming-of-age drama follows a brilliant young physicist in his search for truth. He thinks science will provide the answers, but ultimately learns far more about himself through experiencing love, betrayal, loss, and facing his own mortality. Acclaimed for its kaleidoscopic visual style, The Illumination won numerous awards that heralded filmmaker Krzysztof Zanussi as a major talent.
