It is what it is...
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're expecting a coherent story line from more than thirteen different movies from thirteen disparate directors commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of Lech Walesa's trade union in Poland (which pretty much signaled the end of Polish Communism) in a collection of shorts, you shouldn't even consider this collection.

These are mostly well-done, yet varied short pieces. The gamut is run from rap pieces to straight documentaries to retrospective, historical shorts to tongue-in-cheek examinations of the Polish condition.

This seems like a fair representation of the Solidarity movement on it's 25th anniversary, but mine is a Western view.
