1955. Poland. Directed by Andrzej Wajda. With Tadeusz Lomnicki, Urszula Modrzynska, Zbigniew Cybulski, Polanski. Wajda’s debut film is interesting for its understandably uncritical stance toward Poland’s Soviet occupiers (in dramatic contrast to his Katyn, made a half century later). The film is also notable for the small roles of Polanski and Cybulski, two young rebels who would soon go on to bigger things. In Polish; English subtitles. 85 min.
