    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: La película histórica de Andrzej Wajda sobre la matanza de Katyn da una imagen tremenda de los totalitarismos del siglo XX, de los horrores políticos y morales de las dictaduras comunistas en la URSS y en Polonia. Retrata memorablemente las circunstancias que llevan a la gente bien a doblegar su voluntad y su conciencia, o bien a resistir y mantener el estandarte de la verdad y de los principios, en lugar de acomodarse a lo que hay, a la mentira oficial, y a lo que quiere el poder. _____________________________________________________ English abstract: Andrzej Wajda's historical film on the Katyn massacre provides a terrifying picture of 20th-century totalitarian régimes, of the moral and political horrors of the Communist dictatorships in the USSR and in Poland. It memorably portrays the circumstances which lead people to either curb their will and their conscience, or to resist and raise the flag of truth and principles, instead of accomodating to dreary reality, to official lies, and to the will of the powerful.
