RYSOPIS

IDENTIFICATION MARKS: NONE
Jerzy Skolimowski
PL 1964
78min
V'04

The title Rysopis means «identification marks», and the central character, Andrzej Leszezyc, is something of a surrogate for Skolimowski. The film spans the last few hours before Andrzejs departure for military service. When he appears before the draft board early in the film he is asked for identification marks. His answer is «none». The rest of the film is a picaresque stripping away of identity through a series of encounters. He loses his only valued possession his dog to rabies and reveals few «identification marks» to his wife (she is unaware that he has been expelled from university), to his friends and even his mother. Andrzej comes out something like Skolimowskis own take on the student in Polanskis Knife in the Water. The recurring theme of lost innocence the hesitant walking away from youthful dreams into a hostile world is alluded to rather than spelt out. (Bruce Hodsdon)
