The Spring to Come

Adapted from a novel by Stefan Zeromski, this Polish film has all the strengths and weaknesses of a historical picaresque: colorful characters, interesting locales, and glimpses into historical events, all set in a sprawling and aimless plot. After Azerbaijan is invaded by the Bolsheviks, a callow young man from a prosperous family (Mateusz Damiecki) sets out to find his father, traveling from Baku to Moscow to the Polish countryside, where he joins a group of student revolutionaries. Writer-director Filip Bajon manages to stay focused amid the sweeping, Tolstoyan story, evoking with a few specific shots the look and feel of an Azeri oil field, a Polish country estate, a packed railcar traveling through eastern Europe, and other exotic settings. 140 min.
