  • Camouflage

    1977. Poland. Directed by Krzysztof Zanussi. With Piotr Garlicki, Zbigniew Zapasiewicz, Christine Paul. In this dramatic and wickedly subversive portrayal of the tense conflict between students and teachers at a country summer school for linguistics, Zanussi offers a subtle but fierce critique of Communist Party politics and the precariousness of success in a socialist society. Zanussi once said that he chose to study physics because “the ideological pressure [of Stalinism] didn’t apply to the world of precise calculation.” But linguistics is another matter altogether, for words are slippery and fraught with peril. In Polish; English subtitles. 102 min.
