Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 07/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "The film's shot with austere beauty in black and white, yet its moral judgments are anything but simplistic."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2011
"[I]t's canny, engrossing and ice-cool."

Product Description:

The commanding, charismatic Zbigniew Cybulski (dubbed the Polish James Dean) explodes on screen as Maciek, a Polish soldier who on the last day of World War II is ordered to assassinate a Soviet leader who has arrived in town to establish a new government. Directed with stunning dexterity and inventiveness by the visionary Andrzej Wajda, Ashes and Diamonds was the ultimate film expression of Poland's postwar identity crisis and a vital work of a nation's emerging cinema.
