Most movie posters in the United States are downright boring.
They show the movie stars and share a cheesy catch-phrase or perhaps a one-liner from a movie reviewer.
The brilliant people in Poland, however, do things a little more fabulously.
Movie posters in Eastern Europe are artwork. The creators put so much heart and soul and hard work into them, the results are astounding.
They create movie posters which belong in art museums, much less movie theaters.
Some of the movie posters are obvious and others are conceptual, illustrating the soul of the film as a puzzle which needs to be carefully unraveled.

Breakfast at Tiffany's
