Movie Poetry of 50s and 60s at Polish Film Festival Tokyo – 3 days to go

Lucyna Winnicka, from the movie Night Train by Jerzy Kawalerowicz


With a certain delay but still there is not all to be missed yet – Poland Film Festival in Tokyo is still on tough only 3 days to go. And what is special about it that it showcasing the top of the tops of Polish movies from 50s and 60s featuring the best Polish actors as well as film directors – now also world-wide known as Andrzej Wajda /Oscar for lifetime achievement/ or Roman Polanski /Oscar awarded/. All the movies are very different to each other, comedies, movie dramas, with political heaviness as well as with light romance and if I need to describe them shortly I`d say – poetic. Most of them represents so called Polish Schooland obviously I have already seen them years ago but never on a silver screen – just on TV – as they are far before I was born – so the occasion is special.

The selection focusing for movies which not only in Poland were quite well known and respected but also they were awarded on many international festivals and they were for many, especially directors, the beginning of the international career. I won’t do any review as everyone can easily check it on the event homepage I can only recommend some which still can be seen for the next 3 days at IMAGE FORUM Shibuya:

Knife in the Water  /Noz w wodzie/– 1961, the first feature film by Roman Polanski and also first Polish nomination for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film; screening: 6th Dec 6:30pm

Ashes and Diamonds/Popiol i Diament/– 1958, masterpiece by Andrzej Wajda; screening: 5th Dec 1:30pm

Night Train /Pociag/- 1959, by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, very Hitchcockian, screening: 6th Dec 11am
