Summary/Abstract: Marta Bryś analyses two films by Andrzej Wajda, both created in 1968: Everything for Sale and Layer Cake. According to the author, both productions are comments on the contemporary experiences of Polish society. Giving a detailed account of selected scenes and devices, Bryś points out that even though the films are very different, they contain traces of the dissolution of social bonds resulting from the mass emigration of Jews and the consequences of the government's usage of anti-Semitic rhetoric.
