Sweet Rush (tatarak)

A film by Andrzej Wajda

A middle-aged woman, Marta, wife of a small town doctor, doesn’t know about her terminal illness. One day Marta meets a much younger man, Bogux, and is fascinated by his youth and simplicity. Their innocent “dates” at the shores of the river, marked by mutual fascination, are put to an end by a sudden and cruel twist of fate: it is Bogux who dies first, drowning, entangled in the roots of the sweet rush he was carrying for Marta.
But this is just a first layer of this multi-dimensional tale: Sweet Rush is also a film on making a film and Andrzej Wajda is intertwining the story with real-life monologues of Krystyna Janda dealing with the premature death of her husband, the acclaimed cinematographer Edward Kxozixski.
Sweet Rush is a subtle and touching story of impossible love and, at the same time, the director’s personal account of things eternal: love coming too late and death coming always too early.

With Krystyna Janda, Pawel Szajda, Jadwiga Jankowska-Cieslak, Julia Pietrucha, Jan Englert
