it is simple to define it as one of the most important films of my youth. the performance - memorable Jerzy Binczycki-, the story, the moral lesson, the film as way to the book, all preserves the images of an admirable work. a doctor, his amnesia, his sufferance and the ways to be useful to a small community. the meet. and the truth , after decades, as price of long pain years. nothing surprising for the Polish cinema. but splendid for the small detail to be a fresh story today and demonstration of beautiful art. short, a film who must see it.
