A film potent with the time it was made in. Given that it takes place nearly in real-time, it sags in the middle (especially with an uninvolving romance), but certainly picks up as things get heightened as they approach the climax.

Yes, that's exactly how art films were made by the maestros of that time - crowded rooms to show the circus of party politics, a dandy Resistance fighter with existential doubts, an amour fou for the poetry. Being bored by the narrative stasis of it all I looked at how the camera moved, at what was hidden and what was revealed, where the irony and the symbolism lay. Not that I really want to care about such pat things.

Dug it a lot. So much subversive energy found in cinema of this era in this area of our world. And from that energy came some pivotal, quintessentially cinematic moments and tales. This is no exception.

A thoroughly engaging existential meditation on whats demanded from being part of a revolution and a thoughtful historical examination on the fragmented state of a nation (Poland at the end of WWII). Wajda evokes many emotions through his careful use of imagery but the film's main strength lies in Cybulski's portrayal of Maciek, filled with romantic dreaming, youthful passion and a doubt in everything but the desire to live true.

Doesn't try too hard to seem powerful but provides a nice flow which is enjoyable. The story could have had more meat to it.

"Popiól i diament" spends its runtime part as espionage thriller part more character-based and deals in the good ol' themes of duty vs. individuality, awfulness of war and finding small condolences in the face of bleak hardship. It doesn't do so in a particularly original or stimulating fashion -but it's a solid film nonetheless. The cinematography, in particular, is great -some stunning shots, especially near the ending capture the themes much more resonantly than the script could ever hope to

not significant as its reputation. some very obvious symbolism on Polish history on social level. too quick on moral dilemmas on individual level. a bit ordinary crime or historical movie.

Impeccably photographed, but story didn't entirely connect. Some interesting scenes discussing the end of the war and people's places in it, but Maciek's intellectual struggle with violence could have been explored more deeply.

compared to his debut feature a generation, this is sort of an anti-coming-of-age tale, as a young man struggles between love and rebellion, and ends up with neither. also, that film had a wild-eyed revolutionary spirit, whereas this one is more exhausted with things. some of the narrative decisions might not have worked entirely, but it's pretty insightful and moving.
