This is an attempt to put a video-art work - Swieze wisnie (Fresh cherries) by Anna Baumgart to a critical test proposed by the film critic Serge Daney1. Daney formulates his axiom while discussing a number of films that emerged in Europe as a result of the Holocaust experience. He claims that an author creating a film dealing with such a theme should not place beauty before the just; the author should endow the film with the honesty to acknowledge the impossibility of telling a story - the stopping point in the course of history; when storytelling freezes or runs idle; and finally; such a film should not be speaking about amnesia or repression; but rather about foreclosure; that is a hallucinatory return to the real of something upon which it was impossible to place a ‚Äújudgment of reality‚ÄĚ.
