Sanatorium pod Klepsydra (The Hour-Glass Sanatorium) (The Sandglass)
In the period before World War II, Joseph (Jan Nowicki) is on his way to visit his father in a sanatorium. As he travels by train, his reminiscences and fantasies blend together and become a revelatory window into the mind and psyche of a somewhat mystical young Jew. Among the images that are brought to the screen are the ghettos, black colonial mercenary soldiers, and memories of Jacob's mother and father in better times. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This mind fuck arthouse pic is not for the casual filmgoer or those who demand a linear story."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Jakob's crepuscular quest to reconcile himself to his past will haunt for days those it does not send straight to sleep."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
