Lech Majewski's dazzling visual talents are on full display in this absurdist comedy (2000) set in a rural Silesian mining town during the 1940s and '50s, where seven miners -- followers of a 300-year-old Rosicrucian holy man -- attempt to prevent the apocalypse prophesied by their dubious spiritual leader. Though their plans hit a major snag when they run afoul of the communist government, the miners are more often derailed by the constant clash of their own goofy eccentricities. Told through a series of tableaux-like vignettes and drawing on everything from the Old Testament to Disney, the movie is leavened by Majewski's deadpan sense of humor -- none of this is profound, but it's great fun to watch. In Polish with subtitles; 108 min.
Director: Lech Majewski
