Set in pre- World War II era. A young man is on a strange train to see his dying father in a sanatorium. But the place is going to ruin and recalls a lot of memories from the past. He is beset by soldiers from the past, colonial black mercenaries, girls from his early life, and his parents. It is an interior adventure, with unusual atmospheric flair and extraordinary sets.

"Sanatorium pod klepsydra" is a surreal assault on the senses and perhaps one of the most beautifully shot Polish movies ever made. It's based on the remarkable collection of stories 'Sanatorium under the Sign of the Hourglass' written by Bruno Schultz. Our protagonist Josef (Jan Nowicki) travels on a dilapidated and mysterious train to visit his father at a decayed sanatorium in the middle of the Polish countryside. His journey into a tangled world of real and imagined experiences begins. Extremely stylish and surreal mind trip is the best way to describe "Hourglass Sanatorium". Filled with elaborate set-pieces and philosophical dialogue the world imagined by Bruno Schultz is truly one of its kind. The sleazy shots of half-naked women are a nice touch and the glimpse into Jewish culture is fascinating. A must-see for fans of bizarre and unusual cinema. The wax mannequins sequence is stunningly beautiful.
