1 edition published in 2003 in Polish and held by 45 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 larousse.fr
