Defiance, movie directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai), which will appear in theaters on Jan 16, has already aroused a lot of controversy in Poland. The plot of film is based on a true story. According to some historians the main character Tewje Bielski (featured by Daniel Craig) was not only a hero who saved about 1200 people in woods, but also murderer of civilians..

Nevertheless, I am sure it is worth watching, at least for the for the fact that there is a chance even better to imagine how the life in eastern Poland in those horrible war times might looked like...

I watched this movie and then I purchased the DVD. In my opinion, it was a fabulous movie. At times, it was sad but it was powerful. The Bielski brothers are heroic for saving so many lives at a time when death was on everyone's doorstep!

Did you see it and if you did, what was your opinion? Arrow
