Człowiek z Marmuru = Man of marble by Andrzej Wajda( Visual )

71 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pologne, années 1970. Une jeune fille très déterminée (Agnieszka) décide de consacrer son film de fin d'études à un personnage à la fois mythique et oublié du nom de Birkut. Dans les années 1950, Birkut fut, dans le contexte de l'industrialisation forcenée du pays, une sorte de Stakhanov polonais, statufié (l'homme de marbre) et cité en exemple. Puis il disparut. Surmontant tous les obstacles, Agnieszka reconstitue, à travers les témoignages de ceux qui l'ont connu, la personnalité et l'histoire véritable de Birkut. Un homme bon et courageux avec un regard d'ange, mais aussi un homme candide et aisément manipulable. Birkut est surtout une victime et quasiment tout le monde l'a trahi. Du jeune cinéaste ambitieux (Burski) qui eut l'idée de le filmer en train de poser trente mille briques dans une seule journée à Hanka, sa femme, qui le quitta et le calomnia sur ordre du Parti communiste en passant par Michalak, le policier qui le suivait comme son ombre, ou même Witek, pourtant son meilleur ami, tous, aujourd'hui, survivent cyniquement à ces souvenirs dont le puzzle se complète sous nos yeux. Un jour, quelqu'un a saboté le personnage de Birkut en lui glissant dans les mains une brique chauffée à blanc. À partir de là, Birkut ne peut plus travailler et, de postes honorifiques en petits boulots, rentre peu à peu dans l'anonymat. Agnieszka finit par rencontrer le fils de Birkut qui lui apprend la mort de son père. Son enquête terminée, elle tient, en la personne du fils de l'Homme de marbre, comme une preuve vivante de ce passé qui est celui de la Pologne stalinienne. (Dans l'Homme de fer, Wajda suivra ces deux personnages.) cf

Korczak by Andrzej Wajda( Visual )

57 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henryk Goldszmit had become a Polish icon in the 1930s, through his writings, teachings, and radio programs for children, under the name of Janusz Korczak. WHen the kids from the Warsaw orphanage were to be deported to the gas chambers of Treblinka, he refused ot abandon them, and with them he died in the Holocaust. Academy award winning director Andrzej Wajda (Katyn) brings this tragic tale to the screen in Korczak, starring Wojciech Pszoniak as the kind and fiercely committed doctor. After the Nazis invade Poland, the Jewish Korczak and his orphans are moved into the newly formed Ghettos, where he scrounges for food and vainly tries to protect the children from the violence and famine outside their walls. With a powerful script by Agnieszka Holand (Europa Europa), stunning B & W cinematography by Robby Müller (Dead Man), and performed with self-immolating intensity by Pozoniak and the phenomenally talented ensemble of child actors, Korczak is, as Steven Spielberg wrote, "one of the most important European pictures about the Holocaust"--Container
