Movie Info

ABOUT THE FILM How was it possible for one person to change the world so dramatically? It is as much a political as a psychological question. Wajda, intruding into a private, even intimate sphere of the trade union's leader, attempts to capture the phenomenon of this incredible metamorphosis: from a simple worker, focused on his day-to-day duties, into a charismatic leader. This controversial persona, himself not without flaws, helped millions set free their dreams of freedom they'd been hiding

Unrated,

Drama

Janusz Glowacki

The secret police after the December 1970 strikes at the Gdansk Shipyard. Yet the steely dissident, played by Robert Wieckiewicz, never really comes into focus as a private person.

Uma aulinha de História burocrática, mesmo que seu protagonista se mostre tão importante.

The portrait Wajda and screenwriter Januscz Glowacki create is so reverent, it drains the life out of Walesa's story.

Undeniably hard-going for non-history buffs, but well worth the sweat.

The kind of superior biopic which actually makes you feel like you are there.

The turbulent life and times of Lech Walesa forms the basis for this superior biopic from Polish legend Andrzej Wajda.

A movie with terrific force and irresistible storytelling gusto - and a first-rate lead performance by Robert Wieckiewicz.
