Man of Marble - Czlowiek z Marmuru DVD

by Polish Films on DVD Item #: DV820
Not only is Andrzej Wajda's award winning film one of the most important films in the history of Polish cinema, it is also one of the most compelling attacks on government corruption ever made. It is a Citizen Kane—styled story about a female film student, Agnieszka, who tries to trace the history of Birkut, a long forgotten "hero" of the Polish Communist government. In examining the truth about his life, Agnieszka discovers a more general truth about the bitter years in Poland during the 1950's and the difficult fate of the Communist Party.
