Masterpiece , directing and acting.
Such a sad period in history, the photography is phenomenal, the most lacking element is the aging make up of the characters.
Great and fascinating movie. Masterfully directed and acted. A love story in complicated reality of a country re-emerging after WWII damages to all aspects of life and politics. The meaning of freedom, commitment, values and the motivation/choices of the main characters cause this film to be remembered for a long time.
Fascinated movie , loved every minute of it .
Great movie with a significant flaw at the very end. That our protagonists find spiritual benediction in Polish Catholic fundamentalism is a tragic sell-out to the message of the rest of the movie, which demonstrates that belief in those myths and superstitions lead to the constant repetition of Polish self-destructiveness and personal despair.
Powerful music, complicated love and historical context...visual treat. Masterfully directed! Masterpiece!
