When Angels Fall

Gdy spadają anioły

Directed by Roman Polanski
Poland, 1959
Drama, Short


An old woman works in the men’s lavatory in the basement of a public building. The sound of footsteps on the floor above her brings a reverie of her youth. Her memories are in color, while her dull ‘present’ is in black and white. Polanski’s diploma piece from Film School Lodz.
