Erich von Stroheim,
a film by Andrzey Wayda. for many viewers could be enough for guarantee a remarkable movie. but a film about Walesa by Wajda is more than a good movie.certainly, it represents a real event. sure, first for subject. than for acting. and for photography. it is not a homage but a tool for discover a man behind masks, rules, verdicts and definitions. because Walensa by Wajda is an ordinary person, fragile and angry, vulnerable and religious, fascinating and human. his humanity, his deep humanity does it one of remarkable leaders and the portrait reminds the Biblical heroes for the force of fight and for profound faith. for me, a man from East, this film is, in a special form, a masterpiece. not for itself but for the splendid art to remember a reality who is basis for contemporary society from a part of Europe. and, sure, as exercise of memory. because, after two decades and a half is not easy to see the reality only as show , ignoring its roots.
