An explorer visits what appears to be the ruins of a gothic cathedral. There seem to be some strange statues, though, whose faces follow him as he makes his way to the end; the sun comes out, and he stops at the edge of a cliff.
Late autumn 1943. Wydra (Otter), a Polish partisan, catches an informer in a nearby village and brings him to his starving unit in the forest. A thrilling adventure finds desperate times calling for desperate measures in wartime...
An engaging and moving story. Fine performances from Dominika Osta³owska and Bartosz Opania in particular. Micha³ Lorenc's music complements the film wonderfully without making it over-scored. Scripted and shot with great attention to quality this is a highly recommended film to see.
For those who liked Zabiæ Sekala this one belongs to the same league.
