| Depressing but great.
This short film made me really depressed. So sad so sad. This is one of the greatest short movies I have seen for a long time.

The only thing she wanted was to be loved. But never was. A film about intolerance. It shows the intolerance of homeless, gays and different believers. And like a lot of his short movies do, it gives us a good impression of the big hate he had to the communist system.

The visual was impressive. The miniature town was ugly though, but gave a good effect, even in his young days Roman Polanski managed the art of visualising. The movie must have cost some money because of the war scenes, the costumes was not near the real thing, but did the job well.

I loved the picture where you see the young main character making her way down to the town. Beautiful picture.

Watch and enjoy ;)
