(aka "Zezowate szczescie" or "Cockeyed Happiness")

 

directed by Andrzej Munk
Poland 1960

 

Bad Luck is a comedic criticism of Poland's self-proclaimed bravery, and wartime heroism. Jan Piszczyk, the "hero" of the story, is anything but a hero. This is one of the most popular comedies from post-war Poland.

The odyssey of a man through Poland from 1939 to 1950, in a changing world that seems to have no place for him. We watch him from his childhood to his first love, from his unwilling involvement in Fascist politics to his arrest and imprisonment in a POW camp.

Comments This is an above-average transfer by Facets' standards. The image is non-progressive anamorphic, with nice tonality and a decent level of sharpness, though there is some softness and motion blur on occasion. There are light dust specks throughout, but they never become distracting.

The subtitles are optional and pale yellow. They're mostly well done, but apostrophes are frequently omitted for some reason.

Not much fault can be found with soundtrack, which is free of distortion and has only an occasional pop or crack during reel changes.
