Storyline

A group of students are spending the summer vacation at a university camp studying the science of linguistics. One of the camp directors, Jaroslaw, is a young professor who prefers the straightforward, intimate approach to students. He is opposed in his liberal views by Jakub, who likes to manipulate people. There is a confrontation from the beginning when Jaroslaw allows to attend the seminar a student who presents the views not according to the official line. In the end, a jury prize is given to mediocre paper, while the suspected school of thought still draws a recommendation. Finally the deputy rector arrives for the closing ceremonies, and since he disfavors the line of thought awarded by the recommendation the tensions rise. They climax when student in question bites the rector in the ear while receiving recommendation. The confrontation results in a scandal and the police is called in.

Idealism vs Wisdom, Intelligence and Evil
19 April 2004 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

For I have not found any comment on this title, I would like to write few words. I'm afraid that one, who has not seen the film, might regard it as a picture of polish or socialistic realities. Nothing more wrong. The movie is about us, how we change and what we are ready to do to survive and be well. There is a strong contrast of two characters in the story. The first is good-tempered, idealistic but unwise young man, who has just achieved a title of Master of Arts. The second - cynic and outstanding intelligent older colleague who becomes the master for unexperienced young man. Through all dialogues between the two man (real masterpiece) - evil, for a fist glance, master reveals before lofty man the truths about the human nature and points out his naivety.

I recommend watching the film when you are a teenager, then when you are in your mid-twenties, and once again - when you have a job, family, dog, loans, boss and lawn. Zanussi is not moralizing, it is showing the things how they are. It is up to you what you feel is right.
