Original / alternative title: Zamach
Running time: 85 minutes
Early 1944 in occupied Warsaw, General Franz Kutschera is using mass executions of civilians as retaliation for the actions of Polish resistance. After execution of another 60 civilians Armia Krajowa (Home Army) underground organization plans the assassination of Kutschera and stop that madness. Young students lead by Zawada are chosen to carry out the operation.
Documentary-like war movie presenting the preparations and the operation of Kutschera assassination - from the point where the young resistance warriors had to get hold of cars and improvised weapons, the risks they had to take in occupied Warsaw to the ill fate of the assassins. Realistic and accurate presentation of real events, the atmosphere and the people behind the action, but film lacks the narration that would made it easier to watch.
