"Noce I dnie" (Days and Nights) is the film version of a major Polish novelist Maria Dabrowska's (1889-1965) best novel of the same title. It was published in 1932-34. The novel grew out of nineteenth century realism but the author's work is on an epic scale in its genre and language. The film is a close reading of what Dabrowska wrote. I know of no English translation of the novel yet. The DVD we saw had no English titles however I can't imagine rendering into English the author's linguistic inventions. The author created a language from what was commonly spoken and enriched it by an extensive knowledge of how the language developed over time. This is how the poet Julian Przybos described Dabrowska's linguistic contribution.
