This one is very sad. A sad love story set in the immediate post war period - 1946. The acting, as one expects from Polish movies, is superb. But there's a surprise - the leading man is not Polish at all.

a terrible story flow, before it really got interesting it was over with.

Spare and exquisite storytelling in dark, cold, and ravaged interior and exterior settings. Sad, but a masterpiece.
