The third instalment in Skolimowski’s loose trilogy is also the most innovative. It sees Andrzej (the protagonist played by the director) going over the life he has lead and the choices he’s made. The film was infamously taken out of the Venice Film Festival in 1967 during the communist regime. Fourteen years later, Skolimowski was finally able to re-release the film, and so he also took the opportunity to reedit, shooting an entirely new first act.
