I had the privilege to see the film more than once, so I have nointention to repeat what was already said. What I would like to shareis a bit of my observations while some teenage friend of mine wasseeing the 'Pragnienie Piękna' for the first time. Not only had sheremained silent for the whole movie but also I could see that she wenton a journey with all of the main characters, trying to find a bit of'herself' in those stories. When the operation frames had started shenearly covered her face with a blanket not feeling ready to see therest of the action and was likely to burst into tears when they weretaking off the plaster from Kamila's face after the nose correctionsurgery. The film occurred to be emotionally appealing towards nearly18 years old, sensible, teenage girl as well as to her 'older' friend.At the very end she said: 'Yes that kind of things really happen ineveryman life's'.

Such a beautifully shot film. This film blurs the borders betweendocumentary and feature film with "talking head" interviews, obs-docand docu-drama sequences, all beautifully rendered on the screen.
The real-life characters are presented in a warm and empathetic manner,with their anxieties about the way they look explored in a multitude ofways.
What is most interesting about the film is the neutral tone in whichthe story is presented. We are made to empathize and understand thesubjects of this film, we understand their need and can rationalize itas human. But cosmetic surgery is not a black and white subject, andfrom one moment to the next the audiences judgments might waver fromunderstanding to dismay. We realize the physical pain and the dangersinvolved in these procedures, and we wonder why any person would putthem through such an ordeal.
Ultimately, the quest for physical perfection is seen as a basic humandesire, but we are all too human for it.
"Desire for Beauty" is an excellent reminder of the "disorder" that alarge proportion of the population still lives from day to day. I couldcall it "a beauty disorder". The nature of the material is depressivebut it's shoot with an impeccable taste and careful, like the cut of aprecise surgeon. With class the "wound" and "polish tabu" are exposedto bitter sweet images and a reflection that is not only how much"humanity" has accomplished, but to what extent we've become slaves tothe institutions, facilities, jobs, social trues and structures that weinhabit. Most films center on a hero or heroes scheming to overcomesome obstacle or complete some quest. "Desire for Beauty" world is oneof emotional pressure on which unexpected forces continuously exertpressure on the individual, shaping how he thinks and behaves. A highlyrecommended reflection!!!
