(Pociag) Kawalerowicz’s penchant for atmospheric cinematography heightens the effect of this engaging mystery about characters thrown together on a train speeding toward the seashore with a murderer on board. Leon Niemczyk (Knife in the Water) and Lucyna Winnicka (Mother Joan of the Angels) are two strangers who are forced to bunk together while her former lover,...   More >

(Barwy Ochronne). A naïve young teacher gets schooled on the social order by a disillusioned older professor in Zanussi’s powerful parable of blending in, selling out, and sucking up.
