In this film Andrzej Wajda’s directorial talent was revealed. It is an adaptation of a socialist realist novel by Bohdan Czeszka, but the director clearly goes beyond the current trend. The film tells about the activists of the People’s Guard who organize conspiracy against the Nazis during the World War II. In the picture we have a galaxy of Polish actors – Tadeusz Janczar, Tadeusz Łomnicki, Zbigniew Cybulski and the future director Roman Polański. “Pokolenie” is the first part in Wajda’s war trilogy
