More thoughtful film than we are used to seeing from any source.
This one goes over the same ground as "Death and the Maiden" far more effectively.Simple, accomplished film making and an excellent cast put on the screen ideas that we are not used to seeing.The banality of evil is on the way to becoming a cliché but the depiction of Radziwilowcz (from "Man of Stone")as a character of extreme normality who is even quite likeable, accepting convincing,barbaric behavious and giggling about it with his mates afterwards, registers and the film's final response to Medeiros' judgement is disturbing. Her scenes with Zapasiewicz's dignified blind man are fascinating. It's apalling that we've seen so little of her work in English speaking areas and that a film as good as this is unknown while twaddle like the Peter Greenaway work is considered art.
