    You don't need to know polish to understand it, but for those who want to understand everything:
    The man in the yard is yelling 'I buy bottles'.
    The plaque says 'The institute of experimental medicine' and the note says 'We buy dogs'.
    The old woman at the end yells 'Doggie, doggie, where are you?'
    No more polish apart from that if i remember correctly.

    The most important of the famed Polish 'Black Series' documentaries (at first forbidden), which dared to touch on negative aspects of 'socialist' society. This is a laconic and cruel story of a stray dog living 'among men', an outcast, hurt, persecuted or treated with indifference. Caught by the municipal dog-catchers, he pitifully howls for his life in a dilapidated concentration camp-like structure with, suddenly, innumerable other victims; there is an escape, but it leads him back to the same life. A film about victims and persecutors, not necessarily about dogs.
