“Warsaw 44” Polish movie screened at Vama Veche

“Vama under Oscar Lights” international visual arts festival is running August 19-28 on the beach at Vama Veche seaside resort. Film lovers will be able to see one of the most important Polish productions in the past years, “Warsaw 44/Miasto 44”, an epic story of a youth generation that was part in the Warsaw uprising in 1944 when Poland was under German occupation.

The screening is due at Vama Veche on August 24 at 9 p.m. Free entrance. Romanian subtitle.

The movie, released in 2014 is directed by Jan Komasa, who also wrote the screenplay. Józef Pawłowski, Zofia Wichłacz, Anna Próchniak, Antoni Królikowski are starring.

In 1944, Stefan, an 18-year-old young man, works to support her mother and little brother. When the Polish Army’s command decided to start the attack against weak German troops, which were withdrawing towards West, Stefan joins the movement next to his girlfriend and friends. Although in the first days of the uprising, the fate seems to be on the Poles’ side, after 63 days of fight they surrender to Germans.

Stefan loves nurse Ala, but at the same time he has feelings for underground fighter named Kama. When the uprising is finished with heavy casualties and whole city destroyed, both women are killed. Stefan saves his life by retreating to an island in the river Vistula where he previously taught Ala how to swim. As he arrives, he ostensibly sees her there, but in the end he sits alone.
