Woyzeck

Criminal record or apocalypse 

There is a murder in the garrison. A simple soldier kills his fiancée.  
What is the reason for the Woyzeck's crime? Does it terrify or generate compassion? Who is the criminal and who is the victim? And where does the body end and the soul does begin?
Piotr Cieplak directs a masterpiece of European Romanticism. Reaching for Woyzeck, he poses questions that bother modern man.
