  • Family Life

    1971. Poland. Directed by Krzysztof Zanussi. With Daniel Olbrychski, Jan Nowicki, Maja Komorowska. Featuring three of Poland’s greatest actors, this intense chamber piece centers on an ambitious young industrial designer who is summoned home to help his alcoholic father and suicidal sister. Both the aristocratic family he fled in shame and scorn, and their dilapidated country estate, bathed in an oppressively nostalgic light, prove ultimately inescapable. In Polish; English subtitles. 88 min.
