Kawalerowicz's celebrated film is considered one of the finest achievements of Polish cinema. Employing a classic Hitchcockian premise - two people, one possibly a killer on the run, sharing a compartment on a crowded overnight train - Kawalerowicz turns a thriller into an intriguing character study of ordinary people in unusual circumstances. Featuring impressive performances from Lucyna Winnicka (Mother Joan of the Angels), Zbigniew Cybulski (the 'Polish James Dean') and Leon Niemczyk (Knife in the Water), Night Train is more than simply a thriller... taut and gripping but also suffused with humour and warmth and boasting a wonderful jazz score by renowned composer Andrzej Trzaskowski.

A celebrated landmark of Polish cinema, Innocent Sorcerers has been restored from its original materials and is presented in a new director-approved High-Definition transfer. Following after his renowned War trilogy, Andrzej Wajda made this provocative film about contemporary youth from a script co-written by Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End). A commentary on the lives of young people who grew up in the new, post-war communist Poland, Wajda chronicles a bohemian milieu of motor-scooters, love, sex and jazz with great vitality and humour. The rebellion the film depicts is social and moral, not political - and the film angered both Communist and Church authorities by showing its young characters’ explicit rejection of any ideological affinity. With an outstanding cast headed by Tadeusz Łomnicki, Polish superstar Zbigniew Cybulski, a young Roman Polanski and featuring an incredible jazz score by renowned composer Krzysztof Komeda, this is a key film of the period and in its director’s oeuvre - and one that has substantially grown in stature over time.
