Directed by Andrzej Munk
Produced in 1958
Main Language - Polish / German with English subtitles
Tadeusz Lomnicki, Edward Dziewonski
Munk's 'heroic symphony' presents two tales of courage and valour which set out to demystify the archetypal image of heroism. Set during WWII, Eroica is a darkly comic and insightful satire; a provocative, powerful, and potent anti-war poem considered amongst the most subversive films of the period.
One strand of the film follows the life of Dzidzius (Edward Dziewonski), a wily coward who tries everything in his power to avoid danger when recruited into the military. The other story is set in a POW camp, where Lt. Zawistowski (Tadeusz Lomnicki) appears especially eager to escape, but is he determined to rejoin the war effort or simply unable to stand the inmates with whom he shares a cell?
