“The 8th Day of the Week” Movie Poster
Original studio stamped The 8th Day of the Week (1958) movie poster. Polish writer/director Aleksander Ford takes an astonishing anti-Communist stance, the first of many that would compel Ford to leave his homeland after a general governmental crackdown on person expression in 1968. Plot: Zbigniew Cybulski and Sonja Ziemann play a married couple who fall through the cracks of Red bureaucracy in Warsaw. The film does not endeavor to preach, merely to present a matter of fact glance at how little the individual matters when confronted with mountains of red tape. Upon its completion in 1958 the government refused to allow Eighth Day of the Week to be shown in Poland; it would not have been seen anywhere until its European release one year later.
