User Reviews

Rarely seen, but can't be compared to Wajda's WWII trilogy of the 1950's
25 November 2019 | by jgcorreaSee all my reviews

At the 1959 Mar del Plata Festival¨The Attempt,¨ (or ¨The Assault¨) won as Best Film and its scriptwriter Jerzy Stefan Stawinski won the Best Screenplay award. It wasn't a bad war movie. Director Passendorfer was both a Member of the Polish Parliament and a filmmaker specialized in films about the German occupation of Poland in World War II. Passendorfer had graduated from the Film School of Prague in 1951, and went on to become the leading exponent of the popular "national combatant" genre in the 1960s.
