This Special 4-Disc DVD set of four classic films of Polish cinema
made by four of Poland's greatest filmmakers. These celebrated films have been fully restored from new High-Definition masters and are released for the first time ever in the UK.
This 4-DVD Set comprises:
Night Train (Pociąg/ Jerzy Kawalerowicz, 1959)
Employing a classic Hitchcockian premise - two people, one possibly a killer on the run, sharing a compartment on a night train – Kawalerowicz turns a thriller into an intriguing character study of ordinary people in unusual circumstances. Features Lucyna Winnicka and a great jazz score by Andrzej Trzaskowski.
Innocent Sorcerers (Niewinni czarodzieja/ Andrzej Wajda, 1960)
Wajda's provocative film, from a script co-written by Jerzy Skolimowski, is a chronicle of contemporary youth; a milieu of motor-scooters, sex and jazz enjoyed by a group of Warsaw twenty-somethings. The film brilliantly captures the post-Stalin thaw that was beginning to make itself felt in late-1950s Poland.
Eroica (Andrzej Munk, 1957)
Munk's 'heroic symphony' presents two sardonic tales of courage and valour which set out to demystify the archetypal image of heroism. Set during WW II, Eroica is a darkly comic and insightful satire; a provocative, powerful, and potent anti-war poem considered amongst the most subversive films of the period.
Goodbye, See You Tomorrow(Do widzenia, do jutra/ Janusz Morgenstern, 1960)
Morgenstern's touching and visually stunning story of a fleeting love affair. Made in a loose narrative style akin to the French New Wave, the film stars Polish icon Zbigniew Cybulski (known as the 'Polish James Dean') and has a young Roman Polanski in the cast.
A key film from the era, it also features music by the great Polish composer Krzysztof Komeda (Rosemary's Baby).
