I've seen it and loved it for a first sight. Absurd, humor and something more. typical Polish atmosphere. but if these are reason for calling it `masterpiece' or `classical movie'? It's just a great, great joke about days that gone fore ever.I don't believe that someone who didn't try this life can understand it at all.
