    I see the problem you have with encoding, the last letter of the first word is http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/0142/index.htm

    There's a typo in the title; should be "Popió? i diament" 7 years 3 months ago

    I don't know a great deal beyond the basic facts of what happened at the end of WWII in Poland and this film doesn't help much - it's a politically confusing, extremely talky and rather dramatically uninteresting film (cocky resistance fighter falls in lust with a barmaid and discovers a conscience)- although a good looking one with some striking B&W imagery. This is my third Andrzej Wajda film, and I've come to the conclusion I don't like his films very much - he seems to want to be a serious artist exploring the plight of his homeland while fighting the urge to make action movies - the result is a lack of subtlety. The acting is frequently melodramatic, the screenplay's overblown - spoiler. It's hailed as a classic on all sides, but for me it's dated and failed to keep me interested. 6 years 2 months ago
