story of a man. or, only, picture of a century half. a delicate way to present facts and grow - up of a symbol. and tender art to suggest borders of things heart. a film like a chocolate cup. or green tea. or winter morning. a film like an autumn evening and like ball of childhood remains. sure, it may be a kind of Halmark productions. but it is more. a speech, out of polish temptations about care for others and force of values. a testimony as homage. a map of a life in which gesture is seed to better way to transform existences. Piotr Adamczyk does good work in this really difficult role. because his character is collection of precise nuances. so, his mission is a kind of game with fire. the key of success - honesty. desire to present a way of ordinary man in dark times , not silhouette of a great hero. and mission is accomplished. with deep success.
