Description Technical Specs
 
Six men are assigned the duty of guarding treasures recovered from the Germans in 1945 and must fight the temptation to keep the items for their own wealth. A tense, involving drama and an interesting look at the postwar moral climate in Poland, this film has been described as a contemporary "western" of sorts, playing out its themes with highly symbolic action. "A rare glimpse of postwar Polish cinema by two of the period's boldest directors" (TCM). Also known as Prawo i Piesc. In Polish with English subtitles.

Jerzy Hoffman/Edward Skorzewski---Poland---1964---90 mins.
