Under the Phrygian Star

1954 NR

With the second part of his Cellulose Diptych, award-winning director Jerzy Kawalerowicz returns to protagonist Szczesny (Jozef Nowak), now a full-fledged, middle-aged communist militant in pre-war Poland. Based on the writings of Igor Newerly, Kawalerowicz's epic chronicles the romance between Szczesny and the charismatic Madzia (Lucyna Winnicka), as the ill-fated pair fall in love amid the social and political upheaval of their homeland.
