Canadian movie filmed in post-communist Poland (or rather soon after the transformation has started) was based on story by a Polish emigrant and thus contains the unusual look at the communism. With Donald Sutherland and Anne Archer playing the main characters this rather simple story turns into intriguing drama. The quality of the movie leaves much to be desired, but the underlying story is interesting and has some universal truths to tell, although in some parts it lacks reality and is a bit naive. Nevertheless it is interesting to see Donald Sutherland walking through Polish streets as the country was cutting ties with communism.
