Magic, dreams, a manor in decay. The Hour-Glass Sanatorium is one of the most original and beautiful films in Polish cinema – a visionary, artistic, poetic reflection on the nature of time and the irreversibility of death. The screenplay is an adaptation of the fantasy fiction of Jewish author Bruno Schulz (Street of Crocodiles), one of the most renowned Polish prose stylists of the 20th century.
DIRECTOR: Wojciech Has
