Fuga za čelo, trobento in krajino / Fuga na wiolonczelę, trąbkę i pejzaż / Fugue for Cello, Trumpet and Landscape
Jerzy Kucia is back after thirteen years of silence with this meditative story in the form of a poetic film based on the relationship between images and music. The film shows the process of evoking feelings and searching for landscape specificity by recounting events which have taken place in the scenery.

This is about the laws of love, which are as simple as one, two, three, when we are still in love, but incomprehensible and unexplainable once love retreats. About the logic of the heart, which has nothing in common with the common logic, just like non-Euclidean geometry disproves and surpasses the Euclidean one.
