This is not a "war film" - this is our national debate
I don't blame foreigners if they can't see the controversy behind this movie but to read a Pole's review with such little understanding ...shocking. The original title of this film in Polish reads "The secret of Westerplatte". And that is what matters here. Westerplatte became a legend of Polish resistance,national symbol of heroism and sacrifice. Generations were brought up with this myth of Poland's Thermopylae. Historical truth though was much prosaic and this movie is more like a documentary which tries to give the honest account of events and raise some important questions about the sens of sending people to unnecessary death and suffering. For God's sake - this is what this film is about. And yes, soldiers of Westeplatte and in all other places like it, were dying in horror, behaving often in completely nonsensical, cowardly way, losing they cool, senses, dignity. This is a true picture of war. Poland lost 6 million people in it, mostly due to so much resistance we put up. Was it worth anything? That is what this film is about. Don't expect a B class war movie. It ain't.
