The Men of the Blue Cross

Blekitny krzyz

Directed by Andrzej Munk

Though based on a literary original, this film is more like a documentary, reconstructing authentic events and featuring the real-life participants next to professional actors. It presents a daring operation by the Tatra Mountain Rescue in the winter of 1945.
