"Ashes and Diamonds" aka "Popiół i diament"

"Maciek, a young Resistance fighter, is ordered to kill Szczuka, a Communist district leader, on the last day of World War II.  Though killing has been easy for him in the past, Szczuka was a fellow soldier, and Maciek must decide whether to follow his orders."  The last of Andrzej Wajda's WWII trilogies and another must for any WWII historian.  Give it a go below.

A riveting flick,

The novel by Jerzy Andrzejewski in which the movie is based.
