Thumbs up
29 May 2001 | by (Tel-Aviv, ISRAEL) – See all my reviews

A very good portraiting of the absurdity of life under communism in poland. I particularly liked Jadwiga Jankowska-Cieslak's preformence as Mrs Kviatkovsky. I first saw this movie in the Jerusalem film festival of 1990 or 1991, and it is just as good now as it was back then.

Thumbs up.
