Film version of the story Tatarak by Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz. The leading role of Marta, the aging doctor's wife who struggles with her reminiscences and into whose boring life love suddenly appears, is played by Krystyna Janda, who added elements from her personal life to the original story.

Wajda has already filmed two Iwaszkiewicz stories – The Birch Wood [Brzezina] and The Maids of Wilko [Panny z Wilka], and making a film version of Tatarak has been on his mind for years.

Direcort of photography: Pawel Edelman.
