Munk, a giant of the Polish School of the 1950s, earned his reputation through his highly distinctive style and an uncompromising depiction of the Polish nation. The ANDRZEJ MUNK TRILOGY is an exclusive packaging of his first three feature films.
Man on the Tracks examines the essence of truth when it posits four interpretations for why an old man ended up dead on the train tracks; Eroica offers a bitter yet timeless commentary on the varying notions of heroism and war; and Bad Luck follows the 20-year odyssey of a man caught in the political and social changes in Poland, c. 1930 to 1950s.
Though tragically killed in a 1961 car accident, Munk left behind a legacy of influential and provocative filmmaking.
Andrzej Munk was among the most gifted avatars of the Polish new wave, which emerged from the ashes of a country laboring under Stalinist occupation, its intellectual elite decimated and its cities in ruins. --Village Voice
