  • Without Anesthesia

    1977. Poland. Directed by Andrzej Wajda. Screenplay by Agnieszka Holland. With Zbigniew Zapasiewicz, Ewa Dalkowska, Andrzej Seweryn. Written around the time Holland was beginning her directorial career—and featuring a lead character based on her journalist father—the script skillfully dissects Polish society and values. The title refers to a scene of dental depravity reminiscent of the previous year's Marathon Man. In Polish; English subtitles. 115 min.
