Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery is movie that fits the genres of psychological or thriller, but it ultimately is a mystery. The story begins with Marek (Andrzej Chyra) investigating the death of a fellow police officer that is proving to be a difficult case. His investigation shows that he is somehow linked to the murder, he just isn't sure how. The mystery then shifts to another level, perhaps more haunting than the first.
Hallucinations, dreams, memories, and the true reality overlap and nearly merge into a confused state giving us a mystery that is complicated to unravel. The suspense is wound tight as we are left wondering what the truth is but there are some visual clues to help distinguish different planes of existence. Watching for details may be helpful in solving the mystery so looking away for too long is not advised. There is a good chance that Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery may leave you wanting to watch it again to pick up any missed details to take it all in.
Palimpsest: A Hypnotic Mystery is a unique movie with a bit of an artistic element to it. It is aptly named as "palimpsest" means to wash away or scrape clean and reuse, which was a practice done to manuscripts to reuse them. I won't give away any more of the plot so you will have to see for yourself if you agree with me.
