• Dir: Andrzej Munk

  • Poland, 1958, 84 minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Edward Dziewonski, Barbara Polomska

Andrzej Munk takes a comedic look back at the World War II resistance movement that he was a part of with two stories of accidental heroes. In part one, a coward unwittingly becomes a messenger between local insurgents and the Hungarian army after escaping the Warsaw Uprising. In the second story, a soldier tries to instill hope in his fellow prisoners of war by hiding another soldier in an attic to create the illusion that he escaped. Though darkly funny in its tragic irony, Eroica is also a thought-provoking film about heroism in wartime.
