One of the key films of the Polish film renaissance, this satiric comedy explores the seeming world of emancipated women and emasculated men in Communist Poland. A librarian shares his life and home with his domineering wife. He has an affair with a beautiful intellectual, who wears fly-shaped glasses. She tries to become the woman behind the great artist. It’s a film dedicated to the women of Poland, even as it critiques the relations between the sexes.
