Movie Info

Agnieszka Kowalska (Katharina Thalbach) is a barely educated single mother working as a welder in a drab shipyard in Gdansk, Poland. She overcomes adversity and moves her way up through the factory hierarchy, becoming a leader among her coworkers. Despite being fired and then arrested, the determined Agnieszka teams with another disgruntled worker (Andrzej Chyra) to help form a union that will eventually lead to the fall of communism in her country and the rest of Eastern Europe in the 1980s.

  • An inspiring tale of a small woman who stands tall in the face of injustice.

    June 28, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's all a lot closer to melodrama than drama, but Thalbach is a dynamo.

    June 28, 2007 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Rough-hewn and modest, stirring but rarely grandiose. This seems fitting, since part of what made Solidarity so inspiring was its gritty, determined refusal of ideological grandstanding or political melodrama.

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • The script plays fast and loose with the facts and adds soap-operaish touches, but [Katharina] Thalbach is a feisty delight. Strike is no Tin Drum, but her performance makes the melodrama worthwhile.

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It has a pumping dynamism that keeps you with it.
