THE CONSTANT FACTOR [Constans]
A naïve and sincere young man, Witold, must come to terms with the reality of the world. He dreams of climbing the Himalayas, just as his father had done before him. His skill in mathematics earns him a job in an international trade company, but he soon finds the position grating and his progress thwarted by his own candor. Frustrations mount and personal losses grow as Witold becomes disillusioned with the world’s false choices in Krzysztof Zanussi’s powerful drama. Jury Prize and Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, 1980 Cannes Film Festival.
