Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This third film in Polish hippie filmmaker Andrzej Kondratiuk's autobiographical "Family Cinema" series provides excerpts from his life spent in an isolated cabin with his wife and partner Iga Cembrzynska (the previous two films were The Four Seasons of the Year and The Spindle of Time). Like the others, this too is a homemade effort, with neighbors occasionally helping with the camerawork. Though much of the two-hour effort presents a pastoral view of their life together intercut with fun times spent sparring with each other and hanging out at the local pubs, some of the film deals with deeper and darker sides to their 16-year-marriage, including the effect that Andrzej's frequent philandering has had upon Iga.
