Historical films shall tell the HISTORY, and this film does not. Its main purpose is to do good to the alternative, untrue but unfortunately officially fostered as the only available story of Mr Walesa as the one to defeat the Reds. But the truth, recently being uncovered, is that he was the communist agent designated for the post of a "national hero" subject to covert pressure from them and the man to be blamed for the of the nowadays Poland's "second life" the life of secret services, "serial suicider", poverty, and Russian influences. Walensa is the key for the Poland to become free as it was in 1918-1939 - to hit Walensa and defeat his "legend" is for the Poland to become free at last. This film stands on my way to be free. Mr Wieckiewicz does his best, and the music of '80 stirs my memories, but there are so many good films these days. And few of them so harmful.
