Following Zbigniew Cybulski’s outstanding performance in our opening film Ashes and Diamonds, we return to the work of the legendary Polish star.
Cybulski and the wonderful Elzbieta Czyzewska lead this delicious comedy set in occupied Poland during the Second World War II. The kind-hearted sister of an artist brings an Italian deserter named Giuseppe into their Warsaw apartment.
Trouble begins when Giuseppe falls for Maria, who tries to keep her involvement in the Polish underground under wraps. A cult favorite on the festival circuit, Giuseppe in Warsaw is on the lighter side of classic Polish cinema.
