Statement from the Jury: “The timing in this story is excellent in terms of both the moving images and the music. Skilfully linked with gentle humour, this thoughtful film was worthy of a special mention from us. It is borne by the various equivocal sound levels, which never slip into the obscene. In this way, Volodymyr Antoniv, Ewa Bogusz and Wiesław Nowak have provided a humorous and uninhibited sound track.”
