As a carbon copy of a standard French New Wave film ( closer to François Moreuil than to François Truffaut ), "Do widzenia, do jutra" benefits from the same virtues and suffers from the same vices as the model it takes its inspiration from.
Among the qualities the fresh, unaffected tone of the actors who seem to be what they are in life. On the other hand, the streets and sites of Gdansk are photographed so well and so close to everyday reality that the viewer is made to feel like booking a guided tour for the Polish city immediately after the closing credits.
Unfortunately, sticking to reality is no guarantee that the material you are filming is of any interest, if this "reality" is synonymous with superficiality. For, what is this movie really about ? Nothing much more than : "I love you, you love me a little but you're capricious". Two hours after viewing this film you remember the beautiful streets of Gdansk but you have forgotten practically everything about...the characters! Pleasant but forgettable stuff indeed!
