Lauded Polish director Andrzej Wajda details the tragic events surrounding the 1940 massacre of 15,000 Polish army officers by Soviet troops in the Katyn Forest. A note-perfect cast and Wajda's blend of narrative and documentary styles combine to tell a harrowing story that has a personal resonance for the director - his own father was one of the victims, killed when Wadja was just 13 years old. Nominated for an Oscar, this powerfully emotional and masterfully crafted indictment of war exposes a brutal chapter in history that had all but been erased.
