A collection of films produced in Poland including 'EROICA', 'NIGHT TRAIN', 'INNOCENT SORCERERS' and 'GOODBYE, SEE YOU TOMORROW'. EROICA - This comedy-drama from director Andrzej Munk tells two stories of life in Poland during World War II. In "Scherzo Alla Pollaca," a man trying to worm his way out of military service goes underground,and begins working the black market to support his family. He unwittingly becomes involved with the Polish Resistance, and in time he becomes a brave and valued member of the rebel forces, whose will to survive proves to be a greater asset than many soldiers' ideal of self-sacrifice. The second segment, "Ostinato Lugubre," is set in a Polish concentration camp; one inmate decides that he can no longer stand to be confined and makes a brave if foolhardy attempt to escape. While no one is sure if the man actually made it out, his absence troubles the guards and provides a sense of hope and inspiration for the other prisoners.

NIGHT TRAIN - Originally titled Pociag, this Polish Hitchcock homage stars Lucyna Winnicka and Leon Niemczyk. A mysterious young man (Niemczyk), claiming to be a doctor, boards the night train.

Neither of these reluctant companions is prone to small talk--and both seem to be hiding something. In fact, both seem to be running away from something. Once we've digested all this, it is revealed that the police are searching for a murderer.

INNOCENT SORCERERS - Award-winning Polish director Andrzej Wajda guides this effective tale about a young doctor and the woman he finds when he did not know he was looking. The doctor is attractive enough to have women after him all of the time, which may seem like a great problem for most men but is unsettling to him. Just when he has had it with women coming on to him, he meets a lively young femme who at first seems no different than all the rest. She manages to get into his room where the two of them s
