Do widzenia, do jutra (Goodbye, till tomorrow) is the directorial debut (1960) of Janusz Morgenstern (1922-2011) His other films include Jowita (1967), We Have to Kill this Love (1972), W-Hour (1979), and Lesser of Two Evils (2009). His TV series are Stake Larger than Life (1967-1968), Columbuses (1970), and Polish Roads (1976).
This film has been compared to the French "new wave" movies, yet it is fresh and unique. After October of 1956, when the new leader Władysław Gomułka gave Poles hope for the new future, Morgenstern showed Polish young people as creative, artistic, and full of life and dreams. Jacek and his friends are not cynical or brooding over WWII, but they are the faces of the new Poland of the sixties.
