Great movie,
5 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie,

Thank Mr. Walesa for being You, and thank you for getting rid off Communism from Poland without bloody war. And those who write "sweets" on You should be ashamed of themselves. I believe they on Putin's payroll or just simply jealous. Let them win peace prize and then they could express their stupid 'sweets'. I invite all to see this great movie. Even that this is only a movie but is a great refresher of those times and I hope they never come back. I just visited Poland, Warsaw and it is beautiful place to visit. People are great, and very friendly. And when we visited Westerplatte (near Gdansk) to surprise of my children the World War II didn't started from Pearl Harbor but from Westerplatte on September 1, 1939.
