A Visit to the Old City of Warsaw

Poland, 1959 (MIFF 1960, Programme 1)

Director: Andrzej Munk

An untrained child is very sensitive to all sorts of sounds of the world. Here we see an attempt to transmute the sound impressions of the child to music, and this is the main motif which permits us to accompany a little girl on her walk along the streets of the old town - the most beautiful Warsaw district.

A delightful study, reminiscent of The Red Balloon, of a child's eye view of people and places.
