Poland 2009


This deeply moving film recounts the story of a soldier of the Polish AK army, later imprisoned by the Stalinist regime. He talks about the cruel treatment he received in the vaulted chambers of the secret police; the hours of torture and humiliation. A film exceptional in form; a story about the will to live and the cruelty of the totalitarian state.
