One of the most expensive Polish film projects directed by the highly praised filmmaker Jan Komasa, with special effects by Richard Bain, the man behind the visual effects of "Casino Royale", "Inception" and "King Kong". A riveting film about youth, love and bravery of young Poles destined to enter adulthood in the cruel days of German occupation.

 

Stefan, a loving son and brother who cares for his family after his father‘s death, is torn between the urge of joining anti-Nazi resistance and a promise he made to his mother that he will not engage with the underground. Faced with daily humiliation from German oppressors in a chocolate factory he works at, Stefan ultimately decides to break his promise and join the Warsaw Uprising. 

"Warsaw 44" reflects the human side of a battle that led to the total destruction of Warsaw and relives the days of the largest and most tragic revolt undertaken by any European resistance movement against the Germans in occupied Europe. In two months of fighting about 17,000 insurgents and over 200,000 civilians were killed in the doomed uprising, intended by the Polish Home Army (AK) to liberate Warsaw from German occupation.

 

"We want to show the Warsaw Uprising to the world" - said Jan Komasa, the director of the internationally acclaimed "Suicide Room". Many are unaware that the Warsaw Uprising was the most intense revolt organised against the Germans in occupied Europe. The director's wish was to "give the Warsaw Uprising its deserved place in world-wide consciousness".
