Studio Filmowe KALEJDOSKOP



Hope (2007)


HOPE is a story about blackmail. A well-respected art historian and moral authority steals a valuable painting from a church. He is caught-out by a righteous young (fanatic), who actually doesnt want any money but simply, that the painting will be returned to its old place.


A thoroughgoing idealist? Or a madman, whose brother is in jail and whose girlfriend has to tolerate weird tests of courage…

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.
