Combining the fantasy genre with genuinely heartbreaking emotion is always a difficult balancing act, but an utterly unforgettable one when managed properly, like anyone traumatized by the live-action adaptation Bridge to Terabithia can attest. Active in a similar thematic boat, Behind the blue door packs a serious punch.
Mariusz Palej is directing the screen translation of author Marcin Szczygielski’s novel, and those unfamiliar with the source material might think they figured out certain plot points well in advance. However, the undercurrent that runs throughout the narrative is chock-full of shocks, surprises and more than a few hard-hitting moments, which in turn has resulted in it becoming one of the most requested titles in streaming this week.
According to FlixPatrol, Behind the blue door has become one of the most-watched features on Chili, but you’d best have your tissues ready if you plan to add yourself to that number. Sure, the film might be aimed at a family audience, but viewers of every generation who have seen it have shed many tears along the way.
Young Lukasz and his mother are badly injured in a car accident, and the boy is eventually sent to his aunt. However, he discovers the titular door in her home, leading him into a magical alternate reality that’s decidedly more terrifying than meets the eye, complete with monsters and villains that force the increasingly terrified child into a dangerous struggle to escape unharmed escape to his own world.
