Obywatel Piszczyk = Citizen P.( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in Polish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Akcja filmu rozgrywa się w okresie przemian społecznych zachodzących po śmierci Stalina. Na tle tych wydarzeń historycznych pokazano postać niedoścignionego pechowca - Piszczyka, który po wyjściu z więzienia nie potrafi odnaleźć się w zastanej rzeczywistości. Jest typowym przykładem antybohatera, tchórzliwy i pozbawiony własnych przekonań, stara się sprawiać jak najlepsze wrażenie, odnosi jednak jak najgorsze skutki. Film jest gorzką satyrą na społeczeństwo systemu totalitarnego
