Another Way is another above-average study of a human being in conflict with the status quo from the Hungarian director of The House Under the Rocks (1958) and Love (1971). Our first view of the character played by Jadwiga Jankowski Cieslak is a closeup of her corpse. In flashback, we learn that Cieslak had been a female journalist in the strife-torn Hungary of 1958. The film explores her efforts to report facts in the face of governmental fallacy, as well as her long homosexual affair with Grazyna Szapolowska, another journalist. Withheld from Hungarian release for several years, Another Way proved to be a film-festival success internationally.
