On the final day of WWII, a young Polish Resistance fighter is ordered to assassinate a Communist official. Once comrades in arms, this triggers a moral dilemma, calling into question all that that was fought for. Defined by an electrifying, iconic performance by Zbigniew Cybulski, this depiction of Poland, poised between the horrors of the recent past and an uncertain future, is arguably Wajda’s greatest masterpiece, and a landmark of international cinema.
