"Man of Iron"
Directed by Andrzej Wajda
Made in the center of political events surrounding
it, Andrzej Wajda's "Man of Iron" is a powerful sequel to "Man of
Marble". The film merges documentary footage of the Solidarity strike into a
fictionalized drama of a disillusioned radio producer (Marian Opania) who is ordered to
Gdansk to undermine the reputation of one of the leaders of the worker revolt. "An urgent, nervy narrative conveys all the exhilaration and bewilderment of finding
oneself on the very crestline of crucial historical change"(Time Out).
Winner of the Palm d'Or 1981 Cannes Film Festival. Polish with English
