Man Of Marble. A somewhat forgotten masterpiece of mid-70s Polish cinema from Andrzej Wajda. The film was deemed noteworthy enough to be reviewed twice in the same issue of Cahiers du cinéma, while Jean-Luc Godard spliced a reel of the film in to his own Sauve la vie (qui peut), a reworked version of his own Sauve qui peut (la vie).
