Editorial Reviews

Veteran Polish director Kazimierz Kutz, one-time assistant to Andrzej Wajda and member of the Polish School, directed this endearing drama set in his homeland of Silesia. Cantankerous hero Habryka is an old miner who has won many medals as a stellar worker. Now retired, he lives with his son and daughter-in-law in the old family home, which is full of memories and history. Communist officials want to do away with the old and move citizens to newly built apartments, but Habryka refuses despite cajoling from his family and threats from authorities.
ROSARY is the final and most light-hearted film in Kutz s acclaimed trilogy based on the stories of Joseph Hen in which he examines the long, troubled history of Silesia.

Format: DVD
Don't let the title of The Breads of One Rosary (Paciorki Jednego Rozanca) mislead you into thinking it is a religious film. The title comes from a line in the movie that refers to a father and son are similar in thought like the beads of one rosary. The Beads of One Rosary is a movie about a retired miner named Karol Habryka.

Karol wants to live out his years in his house but the mining company wants to build block apartments where he lives. All of his neighbors agreed to leave their homes except for him. Karol Habryka stands in the way of "progress" because he doesn't need the change.

Karol knows the company doesn't have the best interest of the people in mind and only want to make money. Although Karol is a simple guy, he won many awards as a miner and earned the respect of all his coworkers, which gives him strength over the mining company. The mining company cannot force their former star worker out of his house to build the new apartment complex.

One of the reasons why I think The Beads of One Rosary is a great movie is because it is about an ordinary guy that faces challenges. Karol is interesting and admirable because he upholds his personal integrity. He is a tough old man that stands up for what he believes in and resists conformity even if he looses his popularity. His persistence brings the wrath of some of the others but he persists nonetheless.

The Beads of One Rosary is far more than an artsy drama. It's a story about a man following his heart and doing what he thinks is right. This film is an exception work of Polish cinematography.
