a polite note to the mods.... please this comment to the polish patriotic movie thread where it better belongs
I saw "Man of Iron" (Mezczyzna zelazy)
Człowiek z żelaza
Thought it was a bit heavy handed myself.
In purely cinematic terms not as good as Człowiek z marmuru and a bit heavy handed at times (the best parts are the previously unreleased scenes from Człowiek z marmuru) but in social terms it was a stunningly brave movie - an artist taking on a genuinely repressive government and telling a story that officially couldn't exist.
I can't quibble about it as a movie - it's an invaluable work of art on the movement that would ultimately bring the whole filthy communist system down.
