A middle-aged journalist and his wife invite a footloose young hitch-hiker aboard their sail-boat for a Sunday outing in the Polish lake district.

Kanał by Andrzej Wajda( visu )
11 editions published between 1957 and 2011 in Polish and Spanish and held by 362 libraries worldwide
As Resistance fighters descend into Warsaw's sewer system to escape the Nazis, Wadja shows a psychological descent into the minds of a crushed people. The terrors of war are complicated by the intensely stifling close quarters. Based on actual events during the Warsaw uprising in Sept. 1944. Set during the final days of the tragic Warsaw Uprising of Sept. 1944, a detachment of the Home Army is forced into the sewers, where tension and conflict arise from the claustrophobic atmosphere below and the pressures of the German persecution above

Begins on the 56th day of the Warsaw Uprising against the Nazis during World War II. A ragtag group of trained and untrained Resistance fighters hold on to the front line.

Pokolenie A generation by Andrzej Wajda( visu )
4 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in Polish and held by 43 libraries worldwide
Wajda, who fought for the Resistance during World War II, offers an unsentimental appraisal of heroism in the tale of a cocky Polish youth who decides to fight the Nazis after he falls for a pretty Resistance leader. Barely out of their teens, he and his friends approach their first mission - like a game of cops and robbers

Ambulance ( visu )
2 editions published between 1961 and 2007 in Polish and held by 23 libraries worldwide
In this haunting short fiction film, a group of Jewish children and their teacher are herded into an ambulance by Nazis; the vehicle, ordinarily representing comfort and safety, becomes the group's death chamber. Morgenstern's presentation of the incident serves as a metaphor for the horror of the Holocaust and provides a powerful trigger for discussion of the disturbing issues raised by the film. The figure of the children's teacher specifically parallels Janusz Korčak (1879-1942), a famous Jewish educator who ran an orphanage in the Warsaw Ghetto and died with his young charges at Treblinka
Real end of the great war ( visu )
2 editions published between 1957 and 2010 in Polish and held by 19 libraries worldwide

Das Messer im Wasser ( visu )
3 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in Polish and German and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Auf dem Weg zu den Masurischen Seen nehmen Andrzej, ein erfolgreicher Sportjournalist, und seine schöne, aber unglückliche Frau Christina einen per Anhalter reisenden Studenten mit. Am Ziel angekommen, laden die Eheleute den jungen Mann ein, das Wochenende mit ihnen auf der Segeljacht zu verbringen. Zwischen den zwei ungleichen Männern entspinnt sich im Verlauf des Segeltörns ein Kampf um die Gunst der Frau: Andrzej, eifersüchtig auf die Jugend und die Attraktivität des Studenten, versucht ständig, den Jüngeren vor Christina bloßzustellen und zu erniedrigen. Dieser wiederum fordert den Älteren immer wieder durch sein beständiges Spielen mit einem Springmesser heraus. Die aufgestauten Aggressionen der beiden Männer münden schließlich in einen Zweikampf, bei dem der Student über Bord geht. Da Andrzej weiß, dass der jüngere Nebenbuhler nicht schwimmen kann, springt er ihm nach und will ihn retten. Doch dieser hält sich hinter einer Boje versteckt. Während Andrzej nach ihm sucht, kann der Vermisste unbemerkt wieder an Bord zurückkehren, wo sich Christina ohne Widerstand von ihm verführen lässt. "Das Messer im Wasser" ist Roman Polanskis erster abendfüllender Spielfilm, zu dem er gemeinsam mit Jerzy Skolimowski und Jakub Goldberg in nur zwei Wochen das Drehbuch geschrieben hatte. Der 1961 entstandene Film ist - nach verschiedenen Kurzfilmen - die erste große Stilprobe Polanskis und schwankt unablässig zwischen psychologischem Ernst und leiser Ironie.
