Good story and a solid movie.
This film follows the life of a renowned physician who ends up a homeless vagrant with amnesia after losing his family and getting beaten up in an alley, all within a short span of time.
There isn't anything weak about this movie. The story feels very real and has touching moments without being superficial or cheesy. The story moves between an early 20th century Polish city and village life of the same era. The main character is easy to like and to relate to as he goes through his woes and tries to put his memories and life back together.
I recommend this film if you would like to watch a good, humane drama that doesn't disturb you in its darkest moment, builds an air of hope as it develops, and ends with a very satisfying sweet touch.
