Directed by Krzysztof Zanussi
A landmark film about the limits of rationality. A
young scientist believes rational analysis can solve everything until he is
confronted by an older woman and the accidental death of a close friend.
Zanussi deftly mixes dramatic and documentary footage as he "broke new
ground in his cryptic, intelligent, ironic and ethical essays on the
scientific mind" (Faber Companion to Foreign Films). Polish with
English subtitles. 91 minutes.
