Warsaw, beloved Warsaw

I see you in my dreams

With your joyful people

And beautiful streets

You call me with longing

With your songs and words

Oh, how I would like to see you

again today

Oh, my dreamed of Warsaw

Oh, how I would like to see you

again today

Oh, my dreamed of Warsaw

Thanks for the song, my boy

Thanks for your heart and song

Do you like it?


Wake up, Tonia,

or we'll be late for the rehearsal

Guess, my sweetie,

what there is inside my soul

Caress your pussycat

who's a bit of this and a bit of that

Partly sweet, partly mean,

partly slave, partly queen

Guess, my sweetie,

what there is inside my soul

And if you guess right, I'll say yes

Yes, yes

Oh, yes


Guess, my sweetie,

what there is inside my soul

Caress your sweet one's head

She's a little good and a little bad

I'm mysterious, exotic

or a strange kind of bird

Guess, my sweetie,

what there is inside my soul

And if you guess I'll say yes


Yes, yes, yes



- What's the matter, Tonia?

- Nothing

- Where's my beard?

- What a dump!


Where is my beard?

My God, it's cold here

Get dressed, Tonia.

Let's go straight home

I'm not going home.

Do you understand?

Get dressed.

Put something on

- Get away from me, please!

- What happened?

Go back to feeling Junia up


What are you on about?

- I saw

- Get dressed!

I'm not going anywhere.

I saw what you were up to with Junia

But darling, she's your best friend

You were being too friendly by half

I saw the play you were making for her

I'll go home on my own

Go, then. I don't need your lousy coat

This is ridiculous

Tonia. Goodbye

Excuse me

This is for you

Me and my friend

are big fans of yours

Could we possibly

invite you for a drink?

Come and meet Tonia

We'd really like it if you came with us

What do you say?

The Trumanillo Circus

Shall we take a taxi?

- Kaz, I'm going, OK? See you

- See you at tomorrow's rehearsal?

- Who's he?

- My friend, Kaz Olcha

Drink, girl. Drink!

Please, I can't drink any more

- Cheers!

- I can't drink any more!

Oh, God. I'm drunk

Do you know my husband?

Tell me. Listen to me!

Listen to me!

Do you know my husband?

- Yes, I know him

- My husband is the best guy ever

But let's drink

- Here's to my husband!

- To your husband

Let's have a smoke

Ada, you're misbehaving

Ada, you must be raving

It can't be like this

Hard luck

Thanks for taking me out, boys!


Cos if it weren't for you

I would have cried all evening

You see, we had an argument.

But what for?

My husband will be worried

with me coming home late

The name of my street is Widok.

Will you remember, Widok 6?



- Quickly!

- We're going

Here we are

Come on

Why did you drink so much?

See you, boys

Name and surname?


Leave me

Undress her!

Excuse me. Have you seen a red

handbag? It's leather with a white strap

They take all handbags

Get up or you'll be in for it

from the head of cell

But... Oh, God, what time is it?

Excuse me

Line up straight there.

Hurry up

Is there a phone somewhere

that I can use?

- My husband doesn't know I'm here

- Calm down!

I'm an artiste. I have to perform

in the theatre this evening

I've got a performance. If I'm late...

Cell reporting.

Occupants - 31. Present - 31

Excuse me

Be quiet

- Hey, listen. Be quiet

- Let go

Listen. My name is Antonina Dziwisz.

Tell someone to come and talk to me

Tell someone to come and talk to me.

Do you hear?

Be quiet or I'll bite you

Stupid woman

Be quiet

Letter 'D'



They're letting me out.

Wake up

Letter 'D'!

Karmelicka Street, what number?

OK, don't worry.

I'll talk to them. Bye

They're letting me out. Antonina Dziwisz


Don't you know

you can't say your surname aloud?


Stay there

Good morning

Reporting Antonina Dziwisz

I'm very pleased that

you wanted to...

There's a stool there

You see, I'm really glad

that you summoned me

I've already asked the guards

several times for...

...someone to take me to an officer

or to somebody

- Name and surname?

- Antonina Dziwisz

Born 1st April, 1926 in Lwow

Daughter of Jadwiga

and Stanislaw, yes?


Damn drawer

Excuse me

It's always getting stuck

Above all,

I'd like to know...

...if my husband's been informed.

You see, I haven't done anything

You've definitely got me mixed up

with someone else

You know how it is.

You don't know who to look for...

...what the surname is or who it is

Yeah, so tell me now about yourself

But about what specifically?


Well, I don't think you want to hear me

talk about the boys I kissed at school

Why not?

Go on, talk

But about what?

About kissing at school

Look, maybe you could

really tell me what's going on

I haven't done anything.

I'd really like to help you but...

I don't know.

I've been kept here for so long

No one wants to talk with me.

No one has explained anything...

This really is a waste of time

Don't worry. There's plenty of time

Don't you believe that

I haven't done anything?

- Sorry

- It's OK

One thing at a time.

Just like confession in church

He had red hair and a big nose

- You're interested in that?

- Yes


- The one I kissed

- Did you kiss him or did he kiss you?

What does it matter?

- When did you lose your virginity?

- A long time ago

Why do you need to know? What has

it got to do with me being arrested?
