Hmm, I am not an expert on fairytales.

I meant sth else.

Hint:

Hint:

Re-sizing things? Well, yes, that's part of the convention.

As a reward, you may try to guess the next one:

Looks like Czterdziestolatek, the part where Karwowski is going through the mid-life crisis and playing the guitar.

Yes!! 40 year old - my fav comedy series ever! Very intelligent humour.

Ok, two for you, one easy and one not so easy:

The first one is lieutenant Borewicz from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/07_zg%C5%82o%C5%9B_si%C4%99

And the other displays young Zamachowski. It is his first film from 1982 - Wielka majówka. Nice rock music soundtrack by Maanam - Zamachowski was enthralled with Kora!

Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass

The Hour-Glass Sanatorium (Polish: Sanatorium pod klepsydrą) is a 1973 Polish film directed by Wojciech Jerzy Has, starring Jan Nowicki, Tadeusz Kondrat, Mieczysław Voit, Halina Kowalska and Gustaw Holoubek. It is also known as The Sandglass in English speaking countries. The story follows a man who visits his father in a mystical sanatorium where time does not behave normally. The film is an adaptation of Bruno Schulz's story collection Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass. It won the Jury Prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival.

Wonderful film, my cult one.

So many hateful comments on youtube.

Don`t care about idiots.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B3l_ziemi_czarnej
Salt of the Black Earth (Polish: Sól ziemi czarnej) is a Polish historical film taking part during the Second Silesian Uprising.[1] It was directed by Kazimierz Kutz and released in 1970.[2][3] The film was selected as the Polish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 43rd Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.[4]

Here`s a scene at 3:00 about a young Silesian insurgent who observes the Polish landscape through a German telescope. I always cry when I watch it.

or this one about a Polish officer from Krakow who dies in combat after illegal crossing the border to aid Silesian insurgents, at 3:00.

A few shots from film churches:

No, I haven`t!!!!!!! It was enough for me that I learnt about it in high school before matura exam. I thought I didn`t need to watch it. :):):):)

Somehow films and books about rural people never appealed to me. I also didn`t read or watch Peasants. :):):):):)

Aaah, another cult film!

Hydrozagadka (Polish: Hydro-puzzle) is a Polish superhero comedy film. During a summer heat wave, all the water in Warsaw is puzzlingly disappearing. Scientists secretly call upon As (Ace), a superhero who passes his days living as a mild-mannered engineer, to try to solve the mystery. The movie was ostensibly created as a Communist parody of the American ideals glorified in Superman and other superhero films, however Polish audiences instead felt the film humorously parodied aspects of Polish life under Communist rule, such as the many slogans for a "better life."[1]

Hydrozagadka premiered on April 30, 1971 on Polish television.[2]
