In the forty years of the people's republic,

When a film is created, it is created in a language,
which is not only about words, but also the way that

our understanding of it.

To know who we are, we have to know who we used to be.
Consequently, our literature, written in the past,
anchors us in that past.
- Andrzej Wajda
