If Love doesn't win the Nazi's will return in a different form....
This film is truly inspirational. Karol's philosophy of resisting Nazi and Soviet tyranny in Poland through loving is the most powerful and revolutionary idea I have heard. Maintaining Polish culture through theatre and responding with love and gratitude in all circumstances. This is an incredibly powerful form of resistance. This film is well produced.
This film is in the same genre as "Gandhi"(1982) which similarly was inspiring as it showed the power of non-violent protest and resistance. In our time this message that the pen is mightier than the sword and that we must fight for and with Love and goodness provides hope and a way forward in this world of war, poverty, and deep anxiety and fear. However Karol seems to have something to add to Gandhi's example of non-violent resistance. He has a basis for building society and positively working for the progressive good of Mankind. That we may fulfil our potential in dignity and love in our Cultures and identities.
I hope this film and it's sequel will be better known in the future, and get the exposure that their excellence deserves!!!
