During the screening of the film "Daybreak" at the Liberty Cinema, movie characters suddenly come alive and begin to talk to the viewers. The situation surprises communist authorities who send a censor to the theatre.
Shortly after World War II an American soldier (Norman) and a Polish refugee (Emilia) fall in deep love. Eventually he will return to the U.S. and both expect that she will soon follow him.... See full summary »
Dramatization of the first battle of World War II. The first target of German troops in the invasion of Poland is a small garrison at Westerplatte. Outnumbered and out-gunned, the Poles mount a fierce defense against an overwhelming enemy.
Based on a true story dating back to 1985 when two Polish boys, a teenager and his little brother, escaped from communist Poland all the way to Sweden, hidden under a truck. In the movie, their destination has been changed to Denmark.
Set in a Polish rural village during WWII. Tells the tale of a priest who hears the confession of a would be assassin. Problem is.....the person to be killed seems to be innocent of any wrongdoing and might only be guilty of hiding and protecting Jewish refugees. Should the priest intervene? Film centers almost exclusively on following the priest as he wrestles with this moral question. The actor playing the priest is handsome and good at portraying someone who's vexed and anxious. After seeing the ending, the only redeeming traits of this movie are the "handsome" lead and the atmospheric cinematography. I was hoping the plot would lead somewhere else....was praying that the priest would turn out gay, but didn't happen.
