Go and see it. You will not regret. Thrilling and touching to tears. (by polandgreatagain)
Very well written. Great cast. Historically accurate but not boring. Every American Pole should see it. It is your duty, both as a Pole and as an American. For evil unpunished, only brings forth greater evil.This is the first time in 78 years that the truth about Katyn massacre is spoken in the most public places and mainstream media. Not the news, not government publications, books etc. But on the big screen. Sad but true.There is a reason certain nation and individuals hate Poles and Poland. It is because Poland was the most moral of all nations during WWII. And as a nation acted with <more>
complete dedication, loyalty, selflessness and bravery; more than any other nation. This is a very inconvenient fact, that sheds light on the dark deeds of other nations including our allies . This film is a perfect presentation of this fact.Go see it. The truth will set you free.
Thinking does not hurt, the truth does not sting (by pmandyna)
When the Allies sold Poland in 1939, they wanted to hide the truth. The truth is how the plant, breaks through concrete and asphalt. The truth hurts, but it is cleansing. This is your choice, live in a cliché or live in truth.
Worthy! You can understand better Polish history and how Russia works (by piotr-28898)
If you want to understand Polish history you have to see this title. The film shows investigation of British journalist about history of Katyn masacre. Place where Russians killed arround 22 000 Poles during WW2. Poland lost oficers, teachers, people who could oppose the communist after war.
A revealing movie (by zulunot)
The movie, though premised on the WW II backdrop, isn't a war movie. It's a movie that chronicles how arduously a journalist pursues the mysterious surfeit of suicides of ex-Polish corps. He tries to scrounge for a story, defying odds, from clandestinely poised observers to potentially malevolent institutional resistance.The cinematography of the movie is very accurate in it's treatment of a sensitive subject, with the background score augmenting the pace of the movie, though it might raise the spectre of being a languidly paced movie, only to accentuate the realism that <more>
investigative journalism doesn't fructify as is portrayed in the stereotypical Hollywood movies. The movie is quite authentic in portrayal of the post war eras, with it's settings.It is a poignant movie, and though movies are meant to be enjoyed, it leaves you retrospective, pondering how farcical history can be and how it is usually forged by the victors of a war, often under the garb of sustaining the feeble political entente.
This is a nicely directed, historically accurate movie. The cast is overall very good, especially Robert Wieckiewicz. The Last Witness will be appreciated by the more intelligent, thoughtful movie watchers, but probably not by those who look for excessive violence and explicit sexual scenes.By times The Last Witness reminded me of some of Alfred Hitchcock's suspenseful films. But I was more deeply moved by this one than any of Hitchcock's fictional movies, because I knew these events really happened.
Come on. It deserves a better rating (by rakheshlr-59848)
It's really a good movie. Based on a true incident- Katyn massacre. The direction, acting, camera everything is good. Deserves atleast 7/10
For all discerning film viewers this is a film well worth seeing (by kinsmanivan)
Being an Englishman who has been living in Poland for the last 16 years I was interested to see this joint Polish-Anglo production and it is definitely worth it for those viewers who are interested in this period of history just after the end of World War II.The film, based on a true story, covers the British and American cover up of the Katyn massacre in 1940 by the Russian NKVD of around 22,000 Poles from the intelligentsia, military, church i.e. the country's elite. The victims were shot in the back of the head and buried in mass graves in the Katyn Forest, to be discovered a year <more>
later by German forces who were building a road thru the forest. In efforts to maintain the Russian commitment to defeating the Nazis, the massacre was blamed on the Germans.Alex Pettyfer is very convincing in the role of Stephen Underwood, the young journalist who sets out to discover the mystery of why so many Polish soldiers are committing suicide in his area of Bristol. This is a mission that is of no interest to his editor Michael Gambon and he meets several obstacles along the way in his quest to find out the truth.He is assisted in his quest by his lover, Jeanette Mitchell Talulah Riley who gives a good but a times a little stilted performance and his efforts are being monitored by the British, headed by Mason Mitchell Jeanette's homosexual husband played by Henry Lloyd-Hughes, who also puts in a convincing performance . The witness is played by the well-known actor, Robert Wieckiewicz, and his role is at the crux of the film's plot.So, all in all a definite recommendation to see this film. Piotr Szkopiak born to Polish parents in London - they were deported from Poland in 1939 , who is both the film's director and co-writer, looks like a promising young director to watch out for.
The Katyn massacre by the Soviets in 1940 remained officially undisclosed until 1990 when Gorbachev admitted it. The unofficial truth was known by the British and American governments during World War II and by the public since the late 1940s. This film follows a journalist's fight to tell the truth to the public and the repercussions of his actions.Whoever gave this film a 1 must be crazy. Extremely well shot and acted, this is a good film especially if you are interested in the Katyn massacre. An Anglo- Polish production, it is not a Hollywood blockbuster but a very poignant tale told <more>
This movie isn't from the point of view of the Polish victims of Stalin's massacre. It's about the coverup by the Soviets and surprisingly suppression of the truth by the British government for appeasement reasons and finally the revelation of the massacre by a by a journalist.Alex Pettyfer is a bit dour looking here in a costume that looks more 20s than 40s and not too expressive but he shouldn't overshadow the story anyway.Don't expect an action packed war movie. It's about revelation of the massacre.
