The director himself played the role of a bum, meeting with great sympathy. People who were not on the subject, sneaking past the film set, thought … why did such a wonderful man as Zbigniew fall so low? … It was funny when one lady offered him dinner in a nearby milk bar. In short, there are still good-hearted people in this world.
