In small-town Poland in the late 1950s, an aging woman married to a workaholic doctor meets a young man who makes her feel young again. Framed around this story, lead actress Krystyna Janda discusses the death of her husband from cancer.
Biased as I am since it is set in the town that I live in, I found this movie to be cute, endearing and well made. For the most part the directors stayed away from the temptation to add violent or objectionable material while still creating a realistic portrayal of real people going about their daily lives. The cinematography was worth of an independent film such as this one, with unusual but revealing camera work throughout. The script stuck to a simple narrative while accurately depicting life as a local in a small town. There were a few continuity issues, but these were not recognizable in the moment. The acting, for the most part, was strong. The current of the film was laid back and made one feel at home. All in all, a good, family oriented film.
