Abstract

Director Andrzej Wajda offers a bleak interpretation of the Warsaw Uprising during World War II. A group of 27 resistance fighters from the Home Army retreat into the sewers after their plan to take the Mokotów district of the city meets armed German opposition. Lost and separated in the sewers, they struggle to survive. Kanal mirrors the sense of hopelessness Polish resistance fighters experienced after their initially successful campaign failed due to a lack of Soviet and Allied support. This is the second film in Andrzej Wajda’s World War II triology, preceded by A Generation (1955) and followed by Ashes and Diamonds (1958). It is also the first film made about the 1044 Warsaw Uprising.
