Martin Scorsese presents Masterpieces of Polish Cinema
dir. Tadeusz Konwicki, Poland, 1965, DCP, b/w, Polish w/ English subtitles, 104 min.
A western set in Poland of the 1960s. A man on the run
jumps off a train. He seeks refuge in a scarcely populated settlement, nearly a
ghost town. It is hard to tell what the place is, set halfway between dream and
reality, inhabited by people in distress. Who is the mysterious Mr. Nobody? To
some he seems to be a prophet; to others, a martyr or a common liar. This
enigmatic role was played by Zbyszek Cybyluski, one of the most recognizable
stars in the history of polish cinema.
