Fighting for nothing

Rysopis ends with Skolimowski's alter-ego Andrzej Leszczyc leaving Warsaw on a train to go and do his military service, here he turns up in another town on another train. That isn't quite the beginning, though. The first thing we see is the face of a young woman who throws herself under the train as it draws into the station. Andrzej doesn't seem to notice at the time. He's trying to get the attention of Teresa, played by Elzbieta Czyzewska (who played all the women in Rysopis), who had Andrzej thrown out of his first university course. In between catching his train in Warsaw and getting off this one, Andrzej has done his military service, learnt to box, gone back to college and dropped out again and makes his living by competing in novice boxing matches and selling the prizes of watches and radios.Tomorrow he will be thirty...

The film is a sequel to Rysopis in tone and technique as well - another dog dies, there is the same kind of jazz score and Skolimowski shows his love of virtuoso camera-work, especially long tracking shots. The whole film consists of only thirty four shots - the most extraordinary involving a conversation between Andrzej on a train and a boxer he has beaten on a motorcycle as they move across the countryside. One novelty is the use of interior monologues or soliloquies as Andrzej broods over his situation in a way he did not in the earlier film. In the end, Andrzej and another veteran novice boxer are fighting outside the ring over a cheap radio awarded as a prize...
