Pętla (The Noose). 1958. Poland. Directed by Wojciech Has. Screenplay by Marek Hłasko, based on his short story. In Polish; English subtitles. 96 min.

With Gustav Holoubek, Aleksandra Slaska, Teresa Szmigielówna. “The Noose is a remarkable first feature, for both its formal mastery and uncompromisingly dark vision of postwar Poland. Over a 24-hour period, we follow Kuba (Gustav Holoubek), a wry and lucid alcoholic who plans to begin treatment to overcome his addiction. Wojciech Has transforms Marek Hłasko’s short story into a richly textured cinematic experience” (Annette Insdorf, Intimations: The Cinema of Wojciech Has). DCP.
