Inspired by true events, 'Warsaw 1944' portrays the most unlikely of heroes in an incredible tale of fear, hope and persistence.
Workmanlike Depiction of the Battle for Warsaw 1944
- Warsaw 1944 review by PV
This film is watchable in parts and educational too to learn about the awful siege which killed 200,000 and left Warsow with only 1000 inhabitants., The whoel place was rubble at the end of WWII; now 2 million live there.
The film tells the story through a young male character and that often works though the flights of fantasy sometimes jarr for me - I dislike magic realism and fantasy films in general.
Some shocking violence depicted but this history must be known. Especially now, with more cities besieged again in 2022.
