Modern Pentathlon

Poland | 1975 | documentary | 8 min. Special screeninig

In his first film about sports Dziworski presented Janusz Pyciak-Peciak before the sportsman became the world and Olympic champion. But ,,Modern Pentathlon" is, above all, a little treaty about the physical endurance of man. The impression is that the characters are in some kind of trance: they sweat their guts out during training, take part in gruelling competitions, fight until they arrive at the point of complete exhaustion, and then go back to the monotonous routine of exercise.
