RETURN
The Oscar-nominated 'Katyn' tells the brutal and devastating story of Polish army officers murdered by Russia's Red Army during the Second World War and the families who were still waiting for their loved ones to return. In the spring of 1940, following the invasion of Poland by Russia's Red Army in 1939, up to 20,000 Polish officers and soldiers were executed by Stalin's secret police. The men were imprisoned in three POW camps, one of which was based in the Katyn forest and where Wajda's father was amongst the detainees. Working from a novel by Andrzej Mularczyk and real life accounts, Katyn tells the story of four fictional families, forever separated from one another in 1939. ★★★★ "Desperately moving" - Angie Errigo, Empire ★★★★ "Riveting and hugely important memorial-movie puts labour-camp tourism like The Reader to shame" - Mike McCahill, The Telegraph ★★★★ "This powerful, heartfelt and important drama from one of the great names in world cinema deserves to be seen" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Reminds you that cinema can be the preserver of the truth's smallest details" - Andrew O'Hagan, Evening Standard
