Ashes & Diamonds

Checked out Ashes and Diamonds (Popiół i diament) and seeing it again realize what poetic cinematography and direction have done with excellent material. It is some on my top 20 or so films. Zbigniew Cybulski is in top form in his first major film role.

Side note: the film is full of cultural references that those outside of Mitteleuropa wouldn’t get, example: the new commissioner drinks his tea from his saucer to cool it, that’s a Russian habit.
