INNOCENT SORCERERS [Niewinni czarodzieje]
While a student in the Łódź school, Jerzy Skolimowski (having just recently co-written KNIFE IN THE WATER) co-wrote INNOCENT SORCERERS with Andrzej Wajda. A love story and a portrait of young Poles in the 1950s, this film tells the tale of two people meeting in a bar. They don’t care about the future; their lives seem to consist of going out, playing jazz and having love affairs with no strings attached. The night begins for them with a seemingly simple scenario—from small talk to bed. But as dawn approaches, what starts as an insignificant episode grows in meaning. Jazz score by Krzysztof Komeda (ROSEMARY’S BABY), who also appears in a cameo.
