This is no doubt one of my most favorite films of all times. It has a great screenplay filled with powerful and true characters. The cast is just great. And the gloomy atmosphere of our country back in the seventies...
The only flaw that I can think of is the fact that this film is probably very hard to understand for non-Poles as it is so very... Polish.
