War Plot Summary:Based on Andrzej
Mularczyk's novel Post Mortem. "Katyn" is the name of the forest where the
Soviets secretly murdered 15,000 Polish officers, intellectuals and
professionals over a 3-day period in 1940 (during which a 14-year-old Wajda lost
his own father). Stalin's purpose was to destroy those elements of the
population who would be most resistant to Soviet control following WWII. For
decades the truth was obfuscated, with the Nazis often blamed for the atrocity.
Half a century later, in 1990, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev admitted his
nation's responsibility. In this elegant production, Wajda recreates war-torn
Poland and the stories of both the perpetrators and their victims. Wallpapers Gallery Movie
