Amish (2006)


Jacob and Anita – an Amish couple – came to Poland a few years ago.


The clash between American ideas of our country and reality turned out much more difficult then they had thought. ‘poles do not know who the Amish are, so they treat us as weirdos’, says Jacob. But they are not going to leave. Together with their six children, who were all born in Poland, they seem a happy family.

Filmography - new


Beginning of 1945, Upper Silesia, Poland. The last days of WW2. At the just liberated areas, the Communist Security Service eliminates its enemies under the pretext of punishing “national traitors.” It organizes a labour camp for Germans, Silesians and Poles, at the site of a former Nazi concentration camp, which is named “Zgoda” / “Reconciliation”. Franek, who is in love with a Polish prisoner Anna, joins the camp crew to rescue her. He doesn't know that one of the inmates is Erwin, his German friend, who, like himself, has also loved Anna for a long time. Franek joins Communists in the illusory hope of outsmarting the system.
