An incredible story about a rebel who challenged nature, the regime and his own shortcomings. It is a film about the first successful heart transplant in Poland performed by Professor Religa in Zabrze. Tragedy of failed surgeries, fight for each single heartbeat, grand ambitions and painful defeats, solitude of a genius who embarked on a single-handed quest against his mentors and sparked a revolution in Polish medicine. What was the price he had to pay for his success?

Critic's reviews

Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

You wouldn’t think a film about cardiology in Poland would be such a kick, but Bogowie (“Gods” in Polish) is a fast-paced, soapy pleasure, sort of like ER or Grey’s Anatomy, but with the 1980s setting adding a judicious dollop of iron-curtain period kitsch.
