The last song recorded before Grzegorz Ciechowski’s death in December 2001, released on a CD entitled The Last Album (Ostatnia płyta).

In this animated melodrama, full of poetry and suspense and Chinese-box narrative, she is a mouse and he is a cat, but there is also a tomcat. Love, betrayal and the pain of loneliness are set to Need Your Love So Bad, the beautifully rhythmic and sad blues by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. At the outset, the radio plays the hostile sounds of Tadeusz Nalepa’s song They Will Be Here in a Moment (Oni zaraz przyjdą tu), which set the tone of moral and other anxieties.

A clock, breakfast, time to go to work, and a factory as if from Charles Chaplin’s Modern Times, devours our protagonist. Once there, he meets Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Marylin Monroe; also here, he is hanged, exactly like Harold Lloyd on the hand of an enormous clock, and find himself in a cart rushing along the Odessa stairs in a famous sequence of Eisenstein’s The Battleship Potemkin.
