for physics majors

the story of two old friends, that studied together physics in their youths, who get together in the Polish countryside. One is a sucessful and urbane researcher, the other is just a weatherman in this fringe outpost, but seemingly happily married. All three (one of the wives joins the group) they do town village activities, like go to the movies, take walks in the countryside, watch TV. The airwaves from the Swedish television broadcasting stations reach into their TV, showing walkirian blond sculptured bodies in scandinavian saunas in an atmosphere of consumeristic excess. A careful movie, depicting a friendship, the two go on for the rest of day discussing a physics problem. A beautiful movie, slow by today's standards, but at a human pace.
