synopsisThis film has a 500 views limit.
On the border where dreams and reality collide, every nook and cranny of Krakow springs to life. The city’s appearance in the film may be long gone, but its memory lives on. And with the help of the narrator’s Proustian monologue, the assemblage of black-and-white shots of Krakow in the 1930s becomes a vibrant motion picture of a unique past.
