If you consider "Requiem for a dream" to be the most depressing movie that have ever made, you're wrong. "Kobieta samotna" ("A lonely woman") isn't easily available to watch besides Poland, and that's way, most of you are lucky people. This film gives us an authentic, pure sorrow. Thus, it is not destined for people suffered from depression problems. It isn't so easy to watch. Many people can't stand watching it to its end. I can't either.
This mood is an effect of a great cast and actors' playing. This movie convinces us, that Boguslaw Linda was the really good actor in the past.
