Masterfully crafted by an experienced directorial hand, Katyn is a powerful, personal depiction of wartime tragedy.

[Director] Wajda has brought some small measure of rest to their names, to Poland, and to history.
Katyn is remarkably concise and (if one may say this about a cinematic commemoration of mass murder) elegant.
Wajda's intensity and passion, as well as his intelligence and craft, are unmistakable from the very first sequence. Virtually from the first shot.
The principal success of Wajda's stately, widescreen and exquisitely shot film lies in its sober attempt to mirror the fragmented truth of a genocide.
This powerful, heartfelt and important drama from one of the great names in world cinema deserves to be seen.
Katyn is a sobering experience, at times harrowing. It's also extraordinarily compassionate, even as Wajda vents his rage about what happened and the lies that followed.
Katyn is deliberately intended to inspire patriotism, in the most positive sense of the word.
This was the film Wajda wanted to make all his life.
Oscar-winning Polish writer/director Andrzej Wajda is now 83 years old. But he thankfully hasn't lost his ability to outrage viewers for all the right reasons.
Andrjez Wajda, whose father was one of the officers killed in Katyn, uses the event to explore some of the unhealed wounds suffered by the Poles in World War II.
This may not rank among his greatest masterpieces, but it's exciting to see that Wajda still has a devastating, defiant work in him.
Delivering an emotional punch to the gut in the final reel, this engaging account of an under-reported tragedy will remind you how cinema can still rise to the occasion and go beyond the empty bangs and flashes of tent pole releases.
Katy? is a brilliant exposition of the evil in the Polish-Russian history, the Katy? Massacre; with impressions of hope, lies, and struggle for identity, honor, and pride. Elegant despite the content. Serious, packing a powerful emotional punch. History made timely, interesting, and relevant.
Appreciate it for the historical knowledge it offered (you can blame my knowledge if you're a know-it-all), but the fictionalization and dialogues weren't quite effective.
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." -George Santayana
I have an affinity for true stories, especially those that bring to light an injustice or atrocity. Katyn is a powerful film about the war crimes of the Soviet Union on the people of Poland, specifically the slaughter of Polish officers in the Katyn forest, 1940. Deeply moving.
God bless Poland.
Worthy if plodding account of WWII atrocity which generates an unsettling sense of foreboding as the 'climax' approaches.
