Rotten Tomatoes


A masterpiece by one of the best (director Pawel Pawlikowski won an Oscar for Ida in 2013). Although full of local ‘colour’, this movie is shot in black and white with a square frame. The story follows a patriotic tour of children who have been recruited to sing folk ballads to shore up the communist party agenda for public enthusiasm. A love story develops but it is more of an anti-romantic, devastating account of love in wartime.
