Coming of Age in Wartime as a Boy Among Women

A film well worth seeing, experiencing, piecing together. I offer some of the pieces, without yet being able to offer the "together." I just returned from a showing at the Cleveland International Film Festival, and was disturbed enough by the low aggregate scores on to attempt a review.

Venice is the Lost Paradise of Atlantis, the city of which young Marek dreams in 1939 as he trains to be a Defender of the Polish homeland. He writes his hopes for the future on a piece of paper that he inserts in the wishing wall of the Catholic church next to the boys' dormitory that houses him as the film begins. Meanwhile, father and mother abandon him to the decaying family estate that serves as a refuge for aunts, cousins, where he continues his refrain of "I don't want to be here." A flooded cellar provides a temporary fantasy escape to a paper Venice; steps beyond its confines introduce him to the world of brutality and horror from Nazi invaders and the intimations that Soviet liberators offer a threat of their own.

There is much beauty yet in the women and girls surrounding him, in the remnants of a cultured world in architecture and music. Many scenes are in sunlit nature or golden haze. Marek seems too young to make sense of the world of adults or of the budding sexuality of his more precocious female playmates, yet adult life choices confront him in the most importunate ways.

Reminds on Ingmar Bergman Fanny and Alexander

This is in many ways artistic movie even it was settled in the middle of War. Beauty of nature that surrounds protagonists is inspiring. Movie is full of beauty, classical music and young people who makes unforgettable memories. Young Marek misses his mother and father who have distant relationship with him. They are coming and going and he needs to grow up alone, with a few of his friends who are the same age. I guess, children in the beggining of the past century were much more mature then today's and they needed to grow up very soon because of the Second World war. That happenned to young Marek also. He acted like an adult man, very concerned for his country and family. Beautiful film.
