Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In Polish with English subtitles.

From the director of "Ashes and Diamonds" and "Kanal" comes this story set in the pre-World War II Poland, where a young man dying of tuberculosis returns to his older brother's farm in the countryside. His presence there heightens and then heals conflicts of long standing. The younger brother is too full of life to die before his time; he makes love to a farm girl, plays the piano, and generally lifts his and everyone else's spirits. He becomes involved in a family conflict after learning that his deceased sister-in-law may (or may not) have had an affair with a hired man.

Andrzej Wajda...Brzezina September 17, 2016
Reviewer: rob from Inverell, NSW, - Australia  
Captivating  intensely dramatic film, beautifully crafted, accompanied with a highly emotive score. Profoundly touching story is testament to the brilliant lead performances. The solace and natural beauty of the Birch forest backdrop rings out with bird song, love is shared. Despair of human frailty & death is countered with the enchantment of life to live.            .
Excellent Quality, Many Thanks!! MD...
