The Structure of Crystals
Jan, a physicist, works as a meteorologist in a small village. His wife Anna is a local teacher. Marek, a promising scientist, Jan's colleague from the University, pays a visit. He tries to persuade Jan to return to the University. Unexpectedly, his suggestions meet with strong resistance. The film is Zanussi's first full-length feature film and it was considered an exceptionally interesting debut. The film pictures two life strategies. One is to use one's intellect to the utmost, a thrilling path that leads to wealth and respect; the other is to consciously seek the meaning of existence in refuting everything. By rejecting all amenities of civilization, Jan gets immersed in a simple, biological life, and submits to the passing of time that enables him to sustain a harmony between his own existence and the nature, of which he is a part. In the beginning, Marek fails to comprehend why a talented physicist would seek refuge in the countryside; he can hardly imagine a life without intellectual struggle and victory; later, he acknowledges his friend's choice.
