"Polish veteran Andrezj Wajda tackles an event close to his – and his country's – heart in ‘Katyn’, a poignant drama that traces the lasting effects of a national tragedy, the memory of which started to warp almost as soon as it happened….The principal success of Wajda's stately, widescreen and exquisitely shot film lies in its sober attempt to mirror the fragmented truth of a genocide. For half a century, the perception of Katyn was clouded by ideology: it was a distortion whose ripples were felt at the most intimate of levels. Wajda is excellent at portraying the lingering corruption of this top-down rewriting of history."
DAVE CALHOUN, TIME OUT
This powerful, heartfelt and important drama from one of the great names in world cinema deserves to be seen in Britain.
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
