Null

This carefully crafted drama, taken from the homonymous novel by Bolesław Prus published in 1897, has an ideological background. The communist power of the time, by financing the film, invited to see a metaphor of its own situation against the powerful Polish Catholic Church.

Synopsis

This film describes the manipulations of conservative priests and high priests against the new monarch Ramses XIII 1 , too progressive in their eyes, and they will eventually eliminate playing popular credulity.
