Solidarity, Solidarity . . .

This collection of narrative and documentary shorts examines the lasting relevance of Poland's Solidarity movement 25 years after the shipyard strikes that defied the Communist Party. Three are especially good: In Andrzej Jakimowski's A Sack, two thieves on a train steal a man's satchel, only to discover that it's filled with pro-Solidarity leaflets; after the owner is arrested, they become unlikely activists, scattering the leaflets as the train enters the next station. Robert Glinski's Landscape surveys the Gdansk shipyards, now shockingly abandoned, a symbol of unrealized dreams. And in Malgorzata Szumowska's Father, a self-absorbed young woman recounts her dad's involvement in the movement, poignantly portraying his disenchantment with present-day Poland. 113 min.
