Storyline

"Powstanie Warszawskie" ("Warsaw Uprising") is the world's first feature film assembled entirely of documentary materials. The film tells the story of the Warsaw Uprising as seen by two young brothers, filmmakers of Uprising Chronicles, carrying orders of Propaganda Bureau of the Armia Krajowa. They are direct witnesses to the street fights against Germans and dream of shooting the "real" war. Initially, however, they document the life of capital's civilians. Such materials are expected from their commander, giving them the task of preparing the journal, which is to be displayed in the cinema "Palladium". Looking for suitable shots they go deeper and deeper into actual fights. In the end, they manage to join one of the fight units, which they follow in action. The characters realize that they had to participate in something beyond their wildest dreams - the world in which they find themselves is the world after the apocalypse. They realize that their role is to document the apocalypse... Written by Michal

Very Mixed Bag, Good Moments Interpolated With Modern Staged Shots
8 August 2015 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I love Poland, I love Warsaw, and I try to watch almost every Warsaw Uprising movie that I come across. I watched all old Polish movies and read several books, and when I learned about this 2014 production, I was thrilled and amazed. Wow - a whole documentary movie made of old footage right from the heart of the Uprising. Sounded lime a very captivating and marvelous prospective. It did. But the very first movie frames dispelled that myth almost entirely - the disclaimer says there are certain modern staged scenes. Okay. Let it be so. Then, a second setback - coloration. It can be both blessing and curse. Here, coloration seems to be a mixed bag - often it served the cause well, emphasizing the colorful reality of war- time everyday-ness. Often, this modern coloration spoiled the whole set, making the reality too sickly bright and weird. Another huge mistake was that behind the camera chat, which often bothered, angered, diverted, drove mad and simply was out of place almost 99% of the time. Pity, thus a very promising and mesmerizing idea became a sour, bland, vapid and rather unsteady mishmash of good and bad, awesome and terrible. Pity but bad over-weighed and made this cool movie just plain pathetic and not so cool as it could have been. Watch it once ad dismiss as pretty forgettable attempt.
