The Death of a Provincial

Krzysztof Zanussi
Poland 1965 / 28’

Graduation film. This film was desperate - Zanussi says. A story of glances exchanged by a renovator of church frescoes and an old monk. A confrontation of youth, vitality, self-confidence with humility, calm, consent to death. The film without dialogues, so subtle that it was recognised both by an ecumenical jury (Mannheim) and by the Soviet Atheists' Association (Moscow).
