[Wojciechowska] presents legendary folktales of her native country [in Winter Tales from Poland]. One is about a baby born an old man, with the power of speech. He asks the villagers why they engage in battles every 10 years, and if they can remember what was the last just cause they had fought for. But he's killed by a bullet before they can answer. Some of the stories are light and entertaining but most have a heavy moral; all are tightly structured and engrossing.
