Product Description

Melodrama: Jerzy Leszczyc, a young engineer, falls in love with Amelia Cholski, but doesn`t know that her father is a professional thief, and a wanted man. In fact, she doesn`t know, either. When the police find a stash of stolen pearls at the Cholski household, Amelia is arrested and taken into custody... Melodramat: Mlody inzynier Jerzy Leszczyc zakochuje sie ze wzajemnoscia w Amelii Cholskiej. Nie wie, jak i ona, ze jej ojciec jest poszukiwanym aferzysta i zlodziejem, ktory uciekl po kradziezy kolii perel znajomym Leszczyca. Perly schowal u siebie w domu, gdzie znalazla je policja. Amelia zostaje aresztowana, Leszczyc zrywa z nia az do momentu, w ktorym dowiaduje sie, ze jego ojciec, po dokonaniu malwersacji przed wielu laty, rowniez siedzial w wiezieniu. Cholski ginie w czasie bojki ze wspolnikiem, a Amelia i Jerzy postanawiaja rozpoczac nowe zycie. Akcje filmu przeniesiono w lata trzydzieste pomijajac cala obserwacje srodowiskowo-obyczajowa, tak charakterystyczna dla Michala Baluckiego. Pozostal sensacyjno-melodramatyczny watek, nie odbiegajacy daleko od schematow obowiazujacych w owczesnym kinie.

About the Director

Eugeniusz Bodo (born Bohdan Eugène Junod) (28 December 1899 7 October 1943 Kirov, USSR)[1] was a great film director, producer and one of the most popular Polish actors of the inter-war period. He was born in Geneva, Switzerland, Warsaw as the only son of a Polish emigrant. In 1910 his family moved to Lodz , where his father opened a revue-cinema. In 1917 Junod moved to Pozna where he joined Teatr Apollo. He is best known for his film roles; he played in more than thirty films. In 1932 he was granted with a title of King of Polish Actors and with King of Style in 1936. In 1931 Bodo became a co-founder of the B.W.B. film studio, and, in 1933, he opened a private producers' company Urania, named after his fathers' cinema in Lodz . In the spring of 1939 he opened a prestigious Cafe Bodo in Warsaw. During the Invasion of Poland he organized recitals for the Polish soldiers and civilians during the Siege of Warsaw. During the German occupation initially he ran his cafe, mostly to let other famous Polish artists earn some money after their theatres and film companies were closed. However, the place became so popular that in 1941 Germans decided to turn it into a Nur für Deutsche (literally for Germans only) cafe for the Wehrmacht and other Nazi organizations. Bodo rented out his Cafe and moved to Lwów, where he joined the Tea-Jazz band led by Henryk Wars. However, he was soon arrested by the NKVD (26 June 1941), accused of espionage and, despite being a Swiss citizen, was deported to a remote Soviet GULag death camp, near Arkhangelsk. Sentenced for 5 years in the Soviet labour camp. He was jailed in Butyrski prison in Moscow, in Ufa and Arkhangelsk; then sent to the Gulag where he died of hunger on 7 October 1943. Before the communism collapse 1989 the Soviets contend that Bodo was murdered by Germans, now we know it is not true.

I like it when a story is so intricately woven that all the details bring the story to a higher level. Unwanted Reasons (Za winy niepopelnione) is a love story about one man and two women. Jan Leszczyc (Jerzy Pichelski) is crazy about this woman named Julia, but she only likes to toy with the feelings of guys like it were a game. Having enough of her behavior, Jan heads home to Krakow to spend time with his parents for a while. Shortly, he meets Amelia Holska (Wanda Bartowna) who is helping nurse his injured mother back to health in her free time.

Jan's mother, in a fevered state, asks Amelia and Jan if they love each other and to swear that they will always be together. Going along with her request, they make the pledge, but soon realize they really do have feelings for one another. But what love story is without complication? Julia having enough of her own medicine is now trying to woo Jan back, adding a level of complicatedness. But there is much more - Amelia's father has kept a secret from her that threatens everything, and Jan's parents are also hiding something from him. Let's just say this drama has some interesting surprises that really keeps it exciting.

Unwanted Reasons is the second and last film directed by Eugeniusz Bodo. He also stars in this movie, but was not involved with writing it. World War II brought about unfortunate for Bodo; he was arrested by the NKVD and then starved to death in a Soviet death camp, being declared dead on October 7, 1943. Although the Soviets initially attributed his death to the Germans, in 1991 they finally admitted to what really happened. Long live his memory in the great films of free Poland - the Second Republic of Poland.
