Legendary Polish filmmaker Andrzej Wajda tackles the story of another of his country’s legends — former dockworker, Solidarity founder, and eventual Polish president Lech Wałęsa — in this epic, decade-spanning biopic.

I usually like biopics. It's like having a history class with an interesting teacher. Here we have a Polish director telling us the story of a Polish hero. This hero didn't have an armour or superpowers, he was just an electrician. Informative and recommended.
Increíble, increíble historia. Amplia visión y excelsa muestra de la importancia que es el solidarizarse y hacer que trasciendan, a tope y en la medida de lo posible, todas esas luchas que emergen de los países que pasan por alto las pequeñas dificultades que, acumuladas, son las que terminan hundiendo a una nación. Unión hace falta en México, chingao. 'Congratulado' por conocer la biografia de este señor.
Excelent narrative, superb acting, very interesting use of photography. Very interesting character composition and evolution. Once again, Wajda proves to us he's a kickass polish filmmaker. A must watch.
Great movie! The only thing I did not liked was the music, I think it could have been a little more supportive, and less destructive in order to obtain the true image of what Lech Walesa wanted. On the other hand, this might be one of the better films of Andrzej Wajda. Totally recommend!
