Also known as The Inn, Austeria is set in Poland around the time of WWI. During a pogrom, a group of Jews seek refuge from the Cossacks. The fugitives hide out in a rural inn, terrified that they may be given away at any moment. As the seconds stretch into minutes and the minutes into hours, the film metamorphoses into a series of philosophical/psychological discussions in the tradition of The Lower Depths and No Exit. Austeria was the last film (to date) of Polish director Jerzy Kawalerowicz, whose previous projects have included the award-winning Joan of the Angels and Death of a President. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
