Trivia

The record-breaker among Polish films shelved by the government censors. It waited 25 years for its Polish premiere. The reason for that was the pessimistic look at housing problems in 1950s Warsaw. When the film eventually came out in Poland, the audience did not accept it and the reviews were very critical. See more »

Unforgettable Movie
16 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film in 1958 on the old 42nd Street in New York. It affected me greatly then and I can still recall its vivid B&W images today. It was my first experience with a foreign film. Sonja Zieman was beautiful!
