"An exquisitely filmed and deeply moving account of the last days of the Warsaw uprising."
(Nina Hibbin, Daily Worker)
“Has the claustrophobic intensity and steadily mounting suspense of the best fifties war films. Wajda’s partisans wander through the city’s dank underground, while gunfire rakes the sunlit streets above; freedom seems a chimera to which they desperately cling.”
(Michael Wilmington)
