1968 GRA / THE GAME (screenplay with Andrzej Bianusz). A couple married for twelve years is in crisis. The husband and wife play a game with each other...展开, in which one partner wants to gain the upper hand over the other. An intimate psychological drama. Kawalerowicz took 3 years to make this film, with his wife playing an architect on the verge of the menopause who sees a possible avenue of escape from a stale marriage. Though well-received initially, it was not widely seen on account of the student unrest that had broken out in 1968, leading to a government crackdown and a slew of sackings in the film industry. This was when Kawalerowicz was fired as head of the Kadr unit.
