Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Extensive dialogue and the tight focus of a single apartment setting marks this romantic and politically symbolic drama about Malgortzata, a Polish photographer (Krystyna Janda) and her married French lover Paul (Sami Frey). The two rendezvous in West Berlin to spend some time together before Malgortzata has to go back to Warsaw and Paul returns to his wife and daughter. Malgortzata is excited about her recent trip to Africa and shows Paul her photos; Paul is upset because she says there is no way she will move to Paris, Warsaw is the only place she wants to be. The two talk, disagree, argue, make-up, and talk again -- but will all this discussion ever resolve a matter of the heart and not the mind?
