Ashes and Diamonds
Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema
Martin Scorsese says, “I was overwhelmed by the film: the masterful direction, the powerful story, the striking visual imagery, and the shocking performance by Zbigniew Cybulski, considered the Polish James Dean.” It takes place on the last day of World War II and the first day of postwar peace—and the night between, when everything changes. Maciek, a young Polish resistance soldier, is at a crossroads: As the Communists take over from the Nazis, should he abandon the cause he’s been fighting for?
