    Similar to Wadja's "A Generation" this finely photographed and acted war drama is set in 1943-44 Warsaw where a group of students enter the resistance. Passendorfer delivers a tight narrative and in almost documentary style depicts a real event. Maybe some of the characterizations are crude but the tension is maintained well and the preparation for the mission is punctuated by pockets of action. A good film.
