Film Review

Contract
Directed by KKrzysztof Zanussi
Polart Distribution 1981 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R

Krzysztof Zanussi's Contract provides another hard look at problems in Poland. The director uses the marriage of a cardiologist's son as an occasion to satirize the amorality of the reigning "red bourgeoisie." Writer-director Zanussi makes the most of a talented cast including Leslie Caron as a pompous relative who flies in from London to attend the ceremony and the part at the doctor's sumptuous house. Similar to Robert Altman's A Wedding in its comic tone, Contract is a far better film that has much to say about venality, loneliness, sexual confusion, political maneuvering, religious sham, and familial hostilities.
