A devout Catholic peasant girl is corrupted by two new friends when her family moves to the city. An allegory of traditional Polish values under threat from materialism and decadence in the post-Communist era.
"Wszystko na sprzedaz" was filmed in memory of Polish film star Zbigniew Cybulski who was killed by a moving train at the peak of his career, just like the "invisible" and much-talked-about protagonist of the movie. See more »
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!
