Details

Collection of four classic Polish films. 'Eroica' (1958), directed by Andrzej Munk, is a two-part study of heroism. One strand of the film follows the life of Dzidziús (Edward Dziewonski), a wily coward who tries everything in his power to avoid danger when recruited into the military. The other story is set in a POW camp, where Lt. Zawistowski (Tadeusz Lomnicki) appears especially eager to escape, but is he determined to rejoin the war effort or simply unable to stand the inmates with whom he shares a cell? 'Night Train' (1959), a fast-paced, Hitchcock-influenced mystery directed by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, is set aboard a train headed for the Baltic coast. Jerzy (Leon Niemczyk) and Marta (Lucyna Winnicka) end up sharing a sleeping compartment by mistake and are brought together by the fact that they are both on the run from something. However, while Marta is merely trying to evade a jealous former lover, the arrival of police on the train suggests that Jerzy is implicated in something far more sinister. 'Innocent Sorcerers' (1960), directed by Andrzej Wajda, follows a young doctor, Bazyli (Tadeusz Lomnicki), whose compulsive womanising has left him tired and all but immune to the charms of the girls who attempt to seduce him. However, when he enjoys an intense conversation with a mysterious woman, Pelagia (Krystyna Stypulkowska), who subsequently disappears, Bazyli finds himself smitten and sets off around the city in search of her. 'Goodbye, See You Tomorrow' (1960) is a story about a youthful infatuation directed by Janusz Morgenstern. When Jacek (Zbigniew Cybulski), a young actor, meets Marguerite (Teresa Tusynska), a beautiful French girl, it is love at first sight - at least for Jacek. How will the young man cope when confronted for the first time with the vicissitudes of love? A young Roman Polanski also makes an appearance. Collection of four classic Polish films.
