Piotr Borowski's film Koniec pieśni (The song is over) is truly remarkable and yet startling. It depicts death of a certain culture layer. Tens of years earlier houses in Białystok region were full of folk songs  today they are hardly ever sang.   I went to see it, because I'm interested in theatre. I was convinced that all I was going to see would be the references to Wyprawa zimowa (Winter tour), (...) but quickly realized, that it touches much deeper and more important issues.  Today there's nothing left"  said main characters in the film. And that 'nothing' refers not only to the folk songs. During last three decades a huge area of culture in the social life of Białystok region has disappeared. Today nobody sing those songs any more  and the songs that were recorder for the purposes of film were priceless. Borowski showed through people's faces how painful this loss is. There's also a personal angle to the story. The songs were sang by people who are no longer with us. It may be the last preserved recording of the voice of a mother, wife... The film ends with a funeral service in an Orthodox church for the dead. People sing liturgical songs. Today church seems to be the only place where people still sing. A tradition of song singing disappeared from houses and fields. It's dead".
