Summer breeze
13 February 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A young woman spends the last day of her summer vacation strolling along the now deserted Baltic beach. A young man appears and courts her, she's reluctant but their love is eventually fulfilled - and the man vanishes. This simple plot focus on the woman who is the strong character, while the man almost gives an impression of an airy faun. The sparse dialog seldom interrupts the choreographic action, the camera swiftly following the two characters across the sand dunes. Had it not been for the images of shining metal jet fighters across the sky at the beginning and at the end of the film, it could have taken place anywhere, anytime. The female protagonist is certainly a metaphor for the young Polish nation, gathering confidence after six terrible war years. Quite poetic, beautifully shot.
