War movies often show the worts times in the history of human kind, but even in those times the humanity sometimes was able to overcome to gore and horror. Some of the war movies present the soldiers on the front, sometime the civilians that suffer during the war. Although sometimes the war movies can be awfully brutal, you have to remember that the war is not an adventure, it causes damages to people bodies and minds.

Running time: 80 minutes
On August 1st 1944 Warsaw Uprising has started aiming to free the Polish capital city, while Soviet army was approaching from the east. Young poet Krzysztof Kamil Baczynski was part of one of the platoons of the Grey Ranks - teenagers, who used to be scouts before the war and now joined the resistance. On the first day of the uprising the morale of the insurgents was very high, but their equipment was far from what they could have expected - Baczynski’s platoon has only one pistol and few bullets, but still they are hoping to make their mark in history. But right now all they can do is hide and wait for the Germans to retreat from city center. Once they were able to join their unit the situation in Warsaw seemed optimistic - the insurgents were able to take control over few of the major buildings, but now Baczynski and his men are sent to other duties - they overlook the fight in nearby streets.
Polish war movie describing the short time young poet Krzysztof Kamil Baczynski had to participate in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 - from day one that insurgents stood up against German occupants to they day four that he died. We see how the insurgents spent their time, how they felt about what was going on around them and how the young man, who used to write lyric poetry finds himself in a new reality. Unfortunately the film was made in 1984, which was a really bad time for Polish cinema - soon after the Martial Law period of 1981-1983 and before the switch to democracy there were very little money for movie production, not to mention high quality equipment. Day Four is a mixture of static scenes filmed in the interiors of the buildings and dynamic scenes that were taken from war time newsreels, and the final effect is as bad as can be expected - original scenes introduce very little content, while the war time scenes stick out like sore thumb. The story itself is also not that impressive - Baczynski is known in Poland due to his poetry is school reading, but his participation in Warsaw Uprising is just another story from the World War II era.
