    What is supposed to be witty exchanges is just pretentious platitudes.

    A sweet would-be-love story from Andrzez Wadja, that is an affable black sheep amongst the rest of his films.

    I'm hoping to find a Wajda film I like as much as Kanal, but this one isn't it. It's okay... slightly new wave, as if influenced by Breathless, but I believe it actually came out first. Most of it consists of one conversation between the two main characters, whose flippant tone with each other hides a deeper desire to connect. A nice movie, but not too fulfilling. Keep an eye out for young Roman Polanski.

    Innocent Sorcerers is a Polish new wave film about a young doctor who tires of his Casanova ways and dares to fall in love with a woman who he initially picks up in a bar. There's a great jazz score, and the black and white cinematography makes Warsaw look almost as good as Paris. Although the film moves at a slow pace by modern standards, it's an amusing, even sweet-natured look at one couple's attempts to move beyond the post-World War II generation's selfishness, bravado, and dismissal of love as something hopelessly square.
