ALEKSANDER FORD RETROSPECTIVE: Eighth Day of the Week / ÓSMY DZIEŃ TYGODNIA  

dir. ALEKSANDER FORD, POLAND / RFN, 1958, 83min

The film, which met with negative reviews from critics, was shelved for nearly 25 years, during which time it grew into a sort of legend. It is based on a story by Marek Hłasko, the cult writer portraying the pessimistic world of the lower classes, cynical and demoralized individuals blindly groping for feelings they are unable to reciprocate. When Ósmy dzień tygodnia was finally shown in Poland, it turned out not to have stood the test of time. It remains a work of value, however, if only for the superb acting of Zbigniew Cybulski.

The film is a part of the „Aleksander Ford Film Retrospective". More films in this program at the POLIN Museum, November 20th, 2021
