Audience Reviews for Pokolenie (A Generation)
I always have problems understanding these Eastern European political movies. Is this pro-Communist? It sure felt like it, but the DVD booklet seemed to suggest otherwise. I'm just not very smart about politics, I suppose. It was a good flick, though -- it engaged my attention, I cared about the characters, and there were some astonishing shots (especially considering this was Wajda's first feature).
While not quite as great as the other two films in this trilogy, this is still a beautifully shot and interesting war flick from Wajda; exploring the loss of innocence and tragic idealism of the youth who's lives are given purpose as the get involved in the rebellion against the Nazi's oppression of Poland. Simple, poignant, and emotionally gripping.
The first film of Wajda's War Trilogy. It's a very good for Wadja's first film, but there are some amateur mistakes. The story is about a young man who starts out stealing coal from the Nazi's to leading a Polish Resistance. Very good story with great characters. The problem is some of the staging of the action. It is a little awkward and not well planned out.The film is fast paced and can be a little confusing. It is still entertaining and a great effort for a first film.
