Giuseppe in Warsaw

1964 NR

Staszek (Zbigniew Cybulski) is an artist in German-occupied Poland during World War II. Trouble and laughs come knocking when his sister Maria (Elzbieta Czyzewska) brings home the Italian deserter Giuseppe. Giuseppe promptly falls for his compassionate protector, who must also fight to conceal her own involvement in the Polish underground. This cult favorite marks a rare lighthearted oasis in the often serious world of classic Polish cinema.
