Directed by Andrzej Wajda
Psychological study of a man who accidentally kills a
schoolmate in a brawl and is imprisoned. He is released with the onset of
World War II, only to be locked up once more, but in the Warsaw Ghetto.
Again he escapes and finds himself trapped, this time in a world of non-Jews
where the threat of capture is ever-present. This powerful film makes
extraordinary use of naturalistic symbols. Polish with English subtitles.
