The life of a beautiful, young and pious woman (Grazyna Dlugolecka) is thrown into chaos when her parents takes in a dashingly handsome lodger. Having embarked on a torrid affair, the lodger goes off to Rome to seek a divorce from his estranged wife.

a slow start and quite some time to get into thec characters but well worth it. the story slowly and beautifully unfolds leading you further into the darker depths of people's makeup. Brilliant...
