Storyline

In the winter of 1943 two young Jews, Alek and Fryda, escape, via sewer tunnels, from the atrocities underway in Warsaw ghetto. Alek, entrusted with undeveloped photos of the horrors within, makes his way to a supposedly safe apartment only to find it occupied by Germans. Another tenant, a pole Stephania, abruptly offers to shelter him in her spacious apartment. She comforts him and they make love that very night. Stefania is uncommonly generous and willing to jeopardize her own safety by hiding a Jew. She even goes to a nearby church and rescues Fryda. But Fryda is ungrateful and proceeds to sabotage the trio's safety in insidious ways. Written by Polish Cinema Database <http://info.fuw.edu.pl/Filmy/>

Not bad psycho drama amidst the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
16 August 2000 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

If you like a sexy psycho drama in historic context, with big European star power, this film is for you. The lives of three people tragically clash in this story of oppression, forbidden passion, betrayal and revenge, all this in the face of death. This is an unusually good exploration of the human condition under duress. It also offers us the opportunity to see three of Europe's super stars being and looking 10 years younger. This includes a teenage looking Julie Delpy, and a sexy Hanna Schygulla in her last role as a seductress (albeit as the older woman of the threesome, about forty years old). Available in NTSC English subtitled video, at least in Canada. Check it out.
