Piece of Silezian history
21 June 2003 | by 3tonySee all my reviews

The story of the first or second silezian uprise. After WW I, arises the dispute between Germany and the freshly resurrected Poland about to whom should belong Silezia, a rich, industrial region. The inhabitants are divided between those who consider themselves Polish, German and Silezian. The first start an armed revolt, the German authorities are fighting it with success. Told from the Polish point of view. A masterpiece by K.Kutz, the most "silezian" from the polish directors. A good film, about a very disputed piece of land in the heart of central Europe.
