"Kawalerowicz's masterwork... visually magnificent"
Bright Lights Film Journal
"A superbly taut thriller, constantly challenging its audience... the tension is unbearable and well handled at all times" thirtyframesasecond
"Compelling lead performances and the vivid portrait of a newly restless milieu" Time Out
"This is an existentialist film – not a fairy tale – and it's dense with allegorical meaning: a critique of Marxist and Catholic culture of the time. It's also a portrait of sexual politics in Poland at the start of the 60s" Renata Murawska
"A darkly comic, intelligent, and unorthodox chronicle... a clever, engaging, and insightful satire on duty, courage, and heroism" Strictly Film School
"An impetuous, seminal anti-war rumination... Munk's visual savvy and screwball daring are unique" Village Voice
Goodbye, See You Tomorrow:
"Polish cinema's best-kept secret" Michał Oleszczyk
"Drawn with much cool irony... it does succeed in capturing a sense of place and of summer days in a sleepy town (all beautifully caught in Jan Laskowski's photography). It's the details, in fact, that one remembers... one that stays in the mind" Monthly Film Bulletin
