Niedzielny poranek / One Sunday Morning
Production: POL 1955

This film, made on the basis of Munk's own script, is a humorous film essay, with a subtitle appropriate to its character: Scherzo. It tells a story of a summer Sunday morning in Warsaw, of the city dwellers seen mostly through the bus window. The film merges a humorous, distanced commentary read by Kazimierz Rudzki, and a short anegdote about “him” and about “her” - the bus driver and the bus ticket inspector. Munk used this trivial anecdote to observe and stage typical, everyday scenes from the life of the inhabitants of Warsaw. They do not lack the qualities of realistic observation and humour.
