This film is worth a few screenshots!

That must be "Rękopis znaleziony w Saragossie", "The Saragossa Manuscript" directed by Wojciech Has, 1965

Yeap!!!

The Saragossa Manuscript (Polish: Rękopis znaleziony w Saragossie, "The Manuscript found in Zaragoza") is a 1965 Polish film directed by Wojciech Has, based on the 1815 novel The Manuscript Found in Saragossa by Jan Potocki. Set primarily in Spain, it tells a frame story containing gothic, picaresque and erotic elements. In a deserted house during the Napoleonic Wars, two officers from opposing sides find a manuscript, which tells the tale of the Spanish officer's grandfather, Alphonso van Worden (Zbigniew Cybulski).

The film was a relative success in Poland and other parts of communist eastern Europe upon its release, winning the Golden Wolf at the 1965 Bucharest Film Festival. It later also achieved a level of critical success in the United States, when filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola rediscovered it and encouraged its propagation.

Wajda?

No. We've got a few others too, some better than Wajda IMO :)

This young Janczar and Modrzyńska suggest Pokolenie by Wajda.

It's not Modrzyńska, sorry.

This one still remains unsolved.

But another one has been solved:

That must be "Rękopis znaleziony w Saragossie", "The Saragossa Manuscript" directed by Wojciech Has, 1965

Yes. I'm that nasty. This photo is no good though, I can't see the tears.

Anyway, here's a chance for you to rehabilitate:

Goodbye, till tomorrow:

Yes! A lovely film. But why in German?

Another with with Cybulski:

Need to think a bit... my memory isn't anymore what it used to be.

In the meantime... This time there's NO Cybulski in it:

But why in German?

Because the main female character is French. Simple!

In the meantime... This time there's NO Cybulski in it:

I know this film but forgot its title for a while.

What is this woman talking about?

She's talking about confusion stitched together with thick threads and she knows what kind of glue is hidden behind those threads...

Yes, very good and in general they are talking about "vanished sausages" in Teddy Bear comedy.

Now, before I show more photos, let me offer a hint - all of them relate to medical topics. The truth of the times, the truth of the screen. The truth.

"vanished sausages"

I prefer "snatched weiners".....
OP pawian 197 | 19,922

Vanished is better coz they actually say it: te zniknięte parówki.

they actually say it: te zniknięte

But 'snatched' is funnier IMO. And since some of the humor can't be translated there's nothing wrong with adding some in other places when possible.

Actually I'd go for missing or disappeared (for a more political flavor) there and use snatch elsewhere....

To wszystko każe nam powiedzieć mocno i stanowczo......parówkowym skrytożercom mówimy NIE!
And this leads us all to say once and for all......to all those covert wiener snatchers: STOP!

('stop' works better than 'no' in this context IMO)

But that's more an issue for the translation thread....

But 'snatched' is funnier IMO

Snatched before a noun is linguistically OK while vanished as an intransitive verb isn`t, therefore the latter is funnier if it is used by people who pretend to be educated coz they make a mistake.

Vanished or disappeared, whichever. But not snatched. :):):)

One medical film is already pending, here`s a series:

Akcja pod arsenałem - Polish film from 1977.

Yes, Operation Arsenal, carried out by senior scouts who wanted to free their mate arrested by Gestapo.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Arsenal
The successfully conducted operation led to the release of Jan Bytnar and 24 other prisoners, including another Storm Group troop leader, Henryk Ostrowski "Henryk", and 6 women, in an attack on the prison van that was taking the inmates from Pawiak Prison to Gestapo Headquarters at Szucha Avenue. Bytnar himself died four days later on account of injuries sustained due to German torture. Both of his interrogators, identified as Hubert Schulz and Ewald Lange, were assassinated by Szare Szeregi within two months.

And this?:
