Love and work… in a movie studio near a hotel down the road from a factory. A buoyant, often ecstatic film made in the teeth of the Polish Solidarity movement; a film singing with color and light, peopled with the faces and bodies of Isabelle Huppert, Jerzy Radziwilowicz, Hanna Schygulla, Michel Piccoli and László Szabó, the recreated light of Rembrandt and Rubens and the quattrocento (in the film within the film) contrasting and harmonizing with the clear winter sunlight of Switzerland.
Venue: Walter Reade Theater, Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
