You ever watch the Oscars and feel like they missed the boat? I found my best actress for 1989. Sorry Jodie Foster. The movie was completed in 1982, but not surprisingly was suppressed by the Communists. Krystyna Janda does an amazing performance. In the beginning you don't really sympathize with her, because she's a spoiled actress. I would warn you that it's intense. Not a movie to play at a party.
