Go and see it. You will not regret. Thrilling and touching to tears.
28 May 2018 | by polandgreatagainSee all my reviews

Very well written. Great cast. Historically accurate but not boring. Every American Pole should see it. It is your duty, both as a Pole and as an American. For evil unpunished, only brings forth greater evil.

This is the first time in 78 years that the truth about Katyn massacre is spoken in the most public places and mainstream media. Not the news, not government publications, books etc. But on the big screen. Sad but true.

There is a reason certain nation and individuals hate Poles and Poland. It is because Poland was the most moral of all nations during WWII. And as a nation acted with complete dedication, loyalty, selflessness and bravery; more than any other nation. This is a very inconvenient fact, that sheds light on the dark deeds of other nations (including our allies). This film is a perfect presentation of this fact.

Go see it. The truth will set you free.
