Eroica by Andrzej Munk ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in Polish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two sketches covering episodes from the World War II. In the first section, "Scherzo alla polacca", a shrewd son, trying to preserve his skin, ultimately becomes a hero and finds a reason for fighting. He initially tries to avoid underground training to avoid the Warsaw uprising. His drunkenness, disregard for safety and cowardice when sober stated with humorous effect come out as something sane in the world gone mad. His will to survive is more acceptable than any desire for heroic death. The second section, "Ostinato lugubre", details a hopeless attempt at escape from a prison camp by a man who can no longer stand the confinement and idiocy of the professional soldiers trying to keep up the military atmosphere in prison. Nevertheless, his escape boosts the morale of his fellow prisoners, while the "escapee" lies hidden from Germans and comrades alike

Polen am 8. Mai 1945: In einer Provinzstadt feiert man das Ende des Kriegs; nur für die Untergrundkämpfer ist Frieden noch ein Fremdwort. Maciek Chelmicki und Andrzej Kostecki, zwei befreundete Verfechter des national-bürgerlichen Systems, sollen den Sekretär der Kommuisten töten. Das Attentat schlägt fehl: Irrtümlich fallen ihm zwei Arbeiter zum Opfer. Das unnötig vergossene Blut bringt Maciek und Andrzej in Gewissensnot: Sollen sie weiter für das alte Polen kämpfen oder für ein Polen der Zukunft? Andrzej beleibt unversöhnlich. Maciek dagegen ist des Mordens müde. Die Liebe zu Krstyna bestärkt seine Hoffnung auf ein neues Leben. Den Auftrag führt er dennoch zu Ende. Diesmal gelingt das Attentat, doch dann entdecken ihn zwei Soldaten... Wajdas Klassiker macht Zbigniew Cybulski zum Idol seiner Gerneration. Der "polnische James Dean" verstarb im Alter von 40 Jahren bei einem Zugunglück
