As a young man aged 87 years in year 2013,Mr.Andrzej Wajda is making great films which confirm viewers faith in the strength of "World Cinema".
At the outset, Walesa: Man of Hope is not an ordinary film. It is one
of the best examples of Polish director Mr.Andrzej Wajda's unending
talent and enormous cinematographic vision. The best thing about this
film is how does one dramatize real life incidents to create a biopic
which is both entertaining and rich in details. It is because of this
quality that the film is so tightly structured that while watching it,
one doesn't even realize how 128 minutes have passed. The film finds
its origin in a detailed interview conducted by noted Italian
journalist Oriana Fallaci. She takes the help of an interpreter
(Italian-Polish) in order to ask important questions to Mr.Lech Walesa
related to his turbulent life. What is of interest is that not only she
asks pertinent questions but also receives candid answers. The manner
in which these questions and answers are represented on the screen
speak volumes about Mr.Andrzej Wajda's method of filmmaking. He goes to
a relatively distant past to reveal unknown facets about a man who
would become hugely famous after a decade. Polish actor Robert
Wieckiwicz is extremely ideal in his role as Lech Walesa-one of the
most famous Polish citizens whose name is known even to many young
schoolchildren all over the world.Lastly,Walesa:Man of hope is not a
film.It is pure history in making about a person who changed the
destiny of a whole nation.
