Storyline

"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain". An elderly doctor is approached by a woman with a complicated request. Her husband is gravely ill and may die, and she is pregnant by someone else. If her husband dies, she wants to keep the child, but not otherwise, and she wants the doctor to give him an honest verdict on his chances. But the doctor is disturbed by her request, because his answer will directly affect the life or death of another human being. Is he entitled to play God?

Krystyna Janda
27 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Her physical traits are present, from the first occasion when I saw the episode, in early "90's. Not for beauty but as the lead tool of performance. The destroyed plant, the water on wall, the cactus, the final scene having her performance as axis. Aleksander Bardini has the virtue to give not only a beautiful performance but a precise resume of the Poland of XX century. The grief,the life after it, the advice and answer inspired by a tragedy behind every word. A woman,her husband, her lover and a dilemma . A film about the fundamental choice changing everything. And the reasonable answer.
