Jealousy and Medicine
Krynica, before the war. Widmar, an industrialist, suspects that his young wife Rebeka betrays him with doctor Tamten. Madly in love with Rebeka, tormented with jealousy, he tries everything to see if his misgivings are true. He hires an old tailor, Gold, to follow Rebeka, in exchange offering to help him go to England. Gold discovers that Widmar’s wife has an affair. Failing to receive confirmation of his suspicions due to the tailor’s coincidental death, Widmar trusts his wife’s assurances of love and so he is led to a conclusion that he simply suffered from morbid jealousy.
An adaptation of Michał Choromański’s 1932 novel “Jealousy and Medicine”, popular before the war in Poland and many European countries. A combination of a mysterious melodrama and a film with psychological ambitions.
