Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Room with a Sea View is a Polish film predicated on an old Hollywood chestnut. Marek Bargielowski plays a Nietzschean college graduate who rents a hotel room facing the sea, then steps out onto the window ledge, preparing to jump. Bargielowski's one-time professor Piotr Fronczewski shows up to try to talk his former student out of committing suicide. The rest of the film is a "humanism vs. intellect" argument, with humanism winning out. The original title of Room with a Sea View was Pokój z Widokiem na Morze.
