Not bad

That's the first polish film I comment. It's a war movie, about underground army during WW2. I guess there were many of this kind of features, concerning all the countries occupied by the nazi invasion armies: Norway, Poland, Tchekoslovaquia, Netherlands...

Not uninteresting at all, but it's not Jean-Pierre Melville's L'ARMEE DES OMBRES or Paul Verhoeven's SOLDIER OF ORANGE either. A group of underground warrior tries to escape one of theirs who has been arrested and tortured by the SS Police, the Gestapo. The problem for me was that I did not know any of the actors, so I confounded many of them. But that doesn't make this film an uninteresting one. I am surprised no one has commented it yet; at least from Poland. Not Brazil or USA, of course.

Worth seeing, if you can.
