Summary/Abstract: This text is Tadeusz Lubelski’s review of Rafał Marszałek’s book "Kino rzeczy znalezionych" in which its author tries to describe the history of the Polish mores of the 20th century, as registered in Polish films. The book, based on the research material of more than 200 films spanning over 70 years, was not written from historical and cinematic perspectives and is free of critical approach. Lubelski quotes Marszałek as saying in the introduction to the book that he cannot find his old passion for cinema, that he has come to treat the medium as a consumer, like anthropological material. Lubelski is saddened by the fact that the book contains no academic apparatus, including references to cited reviews.
