Blizna (The Scar) (1976)
Critic Reviews for Blizna (The Scar)
An eye-opening emphasis on the ramifications of Polish bureaucracy.
A polished political savvy drama about the days leading up to the Solidarity Movement in Gdansk, during the time of a bleak Poland under Communist rule.
Kieslowski said it was a film of contradiction, compromise and hypocrisy, and indeed, through the story of the rise and fall of a big rural factory, he pits community against government, environment against industry, and ambition against responsibility.
Portrait of a filmmaker in chrysalis, Kieslowski's feature film debut is uneven, but engaging.
Shot in an unforgiving documentary style, with only the sporadic use of an unsettling modernist score, the film calls not for radical social change but for contemplation.
Audience Reviews for Blizna (The Scar)
The Scar This film is from Kino Video, which is a leader in international films. This is a polish film with English subtitles, about a chemical factory being but up and how it effects the community, and one honest man tries to get it all right. Reminds me of current day wal-mart's littering the countryside. All in all the movie is a 3 star show.
