What makes a man turn radical? In this searing Polish drama based on a novel by Igor Newerly, it's the experience the son of a peasant endures after moving into the city to work in a cellulose factory. Steeped in the world of fanaticism, this riveting debut by director Jerzy Kawalerowicz closely observes how revolutionary political and religious ideas can affect a person's ultimate destiny. Józef Novak, Stanislaw Milski star. 120 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Polish; Subtitles: English. In Polish with English subtitles.
