One day in the life of an alcohol addict. With the help of his girlfriend Krysia, Kuba attempts to regain control of his life. But when she's at work, Kuba is home alone, and it becomes hard not to resist the temptation.
a subtle, bitter, cruel, cold story about the power. admirable adaptation of one of the important Polish novels of XIX century. and support of reflection about force of decisions and the value of good intentions. short, a great fascinating work. who impress not only for acting or costumes, fights and tension but for the realistic rebuild of an Egypt who becomes more than historical lesson. its grace, its terrible force of image and dialog, the new sense of a language who is perfect cloth for the story are virtues of a film who remains, almost half century, fascinating. and useful for understand history as a strange vehicle.
