I absolutely love this movie! It is not a straight, easy and predictable story. It is a multi layered story, with words unsaid and actions unfinished. Wajda forces a viewer to use her/his imagination and fill in the blanks.
I remember, when I saw this movie for the first time in Poland, I found it annoying. I was young then. Now, that I am a mature woman, living in the USA, and knowing two very different cultures of two different countries, I enjoy this movie. It is so different than all the other movies. For the same reason I love Kieslowski's "The Double Life of Veronique." Do not expect the "usual and ordinary" from this movie and you might love it too!
