SYNOPSIS

Wojciech Młynarski said, “A song is a small work that can provoke thinking, but, unfortunately, cannot replace it.”  In over 3500 songs, he portrayed his contemporaries, creating a chronicle of Poland and Poles.  His songs remain an accurate and severe picture of Poland.  As Janusz Głowacki says in the film, “In those miniatures of his, the Polish People’s Republic was reflected more clearly than in a three-part novel.”  Archival materials, photographs, and video, unseen until now, along with new material recall his most beautiful songs.  Wojciech Młynarski’s friends and relatives speak in the film – among them: Janusz Gajos, Janusz Głowacki, Jerzy Derfel, Janusz Sent, Włodzimierz Korcz, Ewa Bem, Janusz Stokłosa, Irena Santor, Michał Bajo, Magda Zawadzka, Krystyna Janda.  These were the people who created with him and with whom he created, outstanding composers, actors, singers. Those honest, uncensored stories have built a portrait of an unusual artist, but also of a personality struggling with human weaknesses.
