In a barren landscape of ice and snow, two men and a sleigh are on an absurd voyage. This was the last of Roman Polanski’s short films before he began work on his first feature, Knife In The Water. It received awards at Oberhausen and Melbourne.

Charming slapstick comedy against a beautiful snowy backdrop. It features probably the greatest score Krzysztof Komeda ever wrote for any Polanski short film, following each action and reaction of the two men who are trying to reach some point, equipped only with one sled and lots of selfishness.
