Storyline

"Powstanie Warszawskie" ("Warsaw Uprising") is the world's first feature film assembled entirely of documentary materials. The film tells the story of the Warsaw Uprising as seen by two young brothers, filmmakers of Uprising Chronicles, carrying orders of Propaganda Bureau of the Armia Krajowa. They are direct witnesses to the street fights against Germans and dream of shooting the "real" war. Initially, however, they document the life of capital's civilians. Such materials are expected from their commander, giving them the task of preparing the journal, which is to be displayed in the cinema "Palladium". Looking for suitable shots they go deeper and deeper into actual fights. In the end, they manage to join one of the fight units, which they follow in action. The characters realize that they had to participate in something beyond their wildest dreams - the world in which they find themselves is the world after the apocalypse. They realize that their role is to document the apocalypse... Written by Michal

Never seen such a film before.
5 August 2014 | by aktur538See all my reviews

This film just blows my mind. Old original documentary tapes are converted in a movie and the result is just marvelous! The film keeps you interested, and frequently you forget that there are real people you are watching. I have never seen such a thing before!

The Warsaw Uprising is a very tragic moment in Polish history. Irrational from the strategic point of view and Poles have paid the highest price for it. No other nation was prepared to destroy their capital together with the most precious generation of young people with it. When you look at the numbers you will find that 200.000 Poles were killed and less than 10.000 Germans in the uprising. This gives that there were more than 20 Poles killed for a single German! Watching this movie can give a bit of answer why this heroic movement was possible.
