Terrific political drama
29 July 2007 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this one of Stoppards best works. I'm amazed that it has become almost invisible . it can't be found on disc . I've watched it on tape several times . It is a terrific reference point for anyone even slightly interested in the initial confrontations between "Solidarity" and the (then) Communistregime in Warsaw . The USSR's background machinations as a sub-plot are amusing too in the light of history .

While the film ends on a Bleak note (half a dozen years before the fall of the "Wall") , it was certainly a harbinger of things to come .

And , with the irony of the current confrontation between the EU and Poland over Gdansk's future , "Squaring the Circle" should be of interest for anyone involved . Brusells is about to do what Breshnev et Cie failed to do....bringing that pesky shipyard to it knees.
