Three War Films: The Andrzej Wajda Collection

Andrzej Wajda

Published December 08, 2005.Three War Films: The Andrzej Wajda CollectionDirected by: Andrzej Wajda(Paradox/Criterion)Collected in a boxed set, the movies A Generation (1955), Kanal (1957) and Ashes and Diamonds (1958) tell of Poland's role in WWII. It's the middle film that's the toughest, following some members of the Warsaw Uprising as they venture through sewers toward freedom. All three are unflinching examinations of human pawns, without sugarcoated resolutions or flaunted political agendas. These 1950s anomalies still carry a powerful force.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
