66 Innocent Sorcerers

Innocent Sorcerers (Niewinni czarodzieje)
A film by Andrzej Wajda
Poland / 1960

Following his renowned War Trilogy, Andrzej Wajda made this provocative film 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 and including Polish superstar Zbigniew Cybulski, this is a key film in its director's oeuvre - and one that has substantially grown in stature over time.

• Presented from a superb new high-definition restoration of the film, approved by the director.
• Newly filmed, exclusive interview with director Andrzej Wajda.
• New and improved English subtitle translation.
• 16-page booklet featuring a new essay by film critic and author Michał Oleszczyk.
• Optimal quality dual-layer disc.

That's a 194 character review in TOTAL FILM. A bit longer than a tweet. No wonder print is dying.

Can't you get any reviews in the Daily Star or The Mirror? They were among my favourite MoC reviews.

"Subtitled film, unfortunately black & white, not bad though. Tits too. I'd recommend renting." - Garry Bushell / Baz Bamigboye / Johnny Vaughan
