BEST movie I've ever seen. Historically accurate, emotional roller-coaster and special effects !!!

I have been reading up on movies on IMDb for many, many years now, but this is the first review that I have ever written. That is because I have not seen a movie depicting history and what actually happened in 1944 during WWII so accurately and movingly, and with great special effects, ever before (and I have seen quite a few).

It is a touching story, sticks to reality and I think that is what makes the biggest impression on the viewer - THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED to the Polish people, in real life. An absolute must-see of the year and in terms of war movies one of the most significant productions ever made.

The now old people who have survived the Warsaw Uprising, say they have never seen a movie as accurate as MIASTO 44 (= "City 44") - watch their moving opinions on YouTube, if you like.

For example, it shows German soldiers and what they were like, as well as the few men who were sent by the Russians in order to 'help' (yea, not really), but in the end created more havoc than anything, since they were simple men never trained for that big a war inside a city (Warsaw was the most destroyed city in WWII, Manila was 2nd).

I hope this review will be helpful to other people - in my opinion this movie is an absolute must-watch, it should be watched by the whole world so that everyone would finally be informed about WHAT those heroic people went through and had to endure. Polish people have a great spirit and always fight for what's right with great ambition, humor and intelligence. They assume other nations are loyal just like they are themselves, which doesn't and obviously DIDN'T always turn out for the best....

GO SEE THIS AMAZING MOVIE and you won't regret it - even if you don't like war movies, it should satisfy you on many other (deeper) levels :))

11 points out of 10 for the producers! wOw and thanks again for making this movie :)
