Watch Polish film: "Austeria"­

At a roadside inn (austeria) in Galicia, a group of Jews barricades against an invading army of Cossacks. As the group is joined by a Hungarian hussar, an Austrian baroness, and sundry Ukrainians and Poles, Austeria becomes a sort of Eastern European Grand Hotel under the threat of war. “During their long night the inn comes alive with romance, religious ecstasy, and personal grief . . . . The missing world of the Polish Jews, this quite original community, has waited for a long time to be commemorated on screen” — Jerzy Kawalerowicz. (Jerzy Kawalerowicz, 1982, subtitles, DCP, 107 minutes)

    This movie was not enjoyable at all. Too much Jewish singing. I wanted to throw up after a while
