I had forgotten that I had wanted to see this movie until that recent Polish plane crash that killed many of their leaders. The delegation was on their way to Russia to commemorate the massacre in the Kaytn Forest of over 20,000 Polish officers by the Russian secret police in 1940. It was going to be the first time that a Russian leader was to officially acknowledge what happened. For years, the Russian government blamed the Nazis for the massacre.
This is a pretty good movie. It reminded me a bit of the recent movie about Sophie Scholl - a solid movie about a facet of World War II that I didn't know much about. Unlike Chris Larry, I don't say F World War II. I'm still into watching anything that will add to my understanding of the war. I liked the storytelling structure of this film - the way it went back and forth in time trying to unravel the mystery of what happened to the officers.
Apparently the eightysomething director, Andrzej Wajda is beloved in Poland. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen any of his other movies but now I'm curious about some of his other efforts over the years.
